June 16, we took Clara to hike around Craters of the Moon. We've been here a handful of times over the years, but it was her first time and it was my brother's first time, too. It was a nice, overcast afternoon, so it was perfect for walking around without burning up.
Our first attempt to take her out here was rough though. A week previously the rain came on so strong, everything was flooded. We couldn't see the roads and were sliding all over the place, so we ended up not hiking that day.
At the end of the video clip below we were being silly and coming up with stories for cloud shapes on the drive back home.
Sunday, Sept. 18 we decided to take a 45 minute drive to Emmett and pick some apples. It was a beautiful day. We are looking forward to next year for peaches, cherries, and plums too.

Today we hiked around the Foothills Learning Center in Boise. Well, more like strolled along. It was great to get out of the house at 8 weeks post c-section. We did a little over a half mile, and I got to take some photos of my boys and baby girl as well as some macro shots, which is always peaceful to do. It was really hot out too, so we didn't want Clara in the heat for too long. It lifted our spirits. There was so much joy in being able to get up on my feet and move around after months of rarely being able to stand, let alone get one foot in front of the other.
