Alexa-ism: Alexa came home from school with a child I.D. kit (I just hate the thought of ever needing to use one) so I swabbed the inside of her cheeks with cotton-tipped applicators to save as a DNA sample. I tried to explain to her what they were for but apparently I didn't do a very good job. Later that afternoon I overheard her tell Grace, "Mommy put computers in my cheeks so that if I ever get lost or stolen then people will know who I am."
Alexa-ism: "Mommy! I just saw a deer sleeping in the grass by the road!" I don't think that deer was sleeping!

Alexa with her little blue bag. Thank goodness for little blue bags filled with fluid-absorbing gel. Adelle slept through the entire hike down while Grace reached her breaking point. I think the quote of the day was when we were about halfway back down the trail and Grace whines to Phillip, "Daddy, I'm tired of you walking!" Wow.Well, it took a few minutes for me to decide if the trip was worth it and if we were the funnest parents ever, and I answered, "yes!" This will definitely be an outing to remember, and one that we will probably laugh about for years, but I loved being with my girls and being in the mountains!
PS. One high note: Grace stood completely independent for the first time EVER!!! This is an image that brought tears to my eyes and made me cheer loud enough to attract way too much attention!
