Palo Duro

Yesterday we went hiking at Palo Duro Canyon. We were all very excited to go, and are eager to go again. It was beautiful! 
We brought the two big dogs, and Molly and Piper were worn out after our 3 mile hike! Definitely different terrain than we're used to! 
Packed up and on the road to get there!

We packed snacks, lots of water, and a picnic lunch (but we just decided to eat in the car on the way home!) 

Everyone did great, even with picking a "difficult trail." We stopped at the visitor center to get the kids booklets to fill out to earn their Junior Naturalist badges. They were very proud! It was a great day!

Yesterday was Blake's seventh birthday! We celebrated at school on Friday with a shared celebration of donuts and fruit kebabs with her two birthday buddies for both the 1st grade classes. Easton and I brought the girls flowers!
On her birthday, we had confetti puffins (pancake muffins) and Grandma and Papa joined us for the day. Grammy and Grandpa celebrated both kids' birthdays with us last weekend! Blake picked Chick-fil-A for lunch before her last indoor soccer game of the season that they won! 

Blake wanted a betta fish and tank and a house for her Calico Critter collection. She was so happy with her day! We rode bikes and had a great day with ice cream cake courtesy of Grandma!
From one to seven in the blink of an eye! We're so proud of this sweet, hard-working, steadfast, beautiful young lady. We love you, Blake!
