Last Day of Our North Shore Adventure!

The second day was different!
The kids that had struggled a bit with the new environment where now acclimated.
We had more smiles, less crabbiness and less trying to create issues.

It was a day that our prayers were filled with thankfulness!



There was so much joy on our children's faces!
They were relaxed and taking it all in.



Crazy kids!



Split Rock Lighthouse was beautiful!



The view was breath taking!



We were part of a guided group.
It is so interesting hearing the history!
Our Anna is very active ; - )
But somehow she still takes it all in and learns!
I don't know how she does it but she does!



Going up the stairs in the lighthouse!



The view from way up top!




The view from over the ledge- yikes!


It's over a 100 ft drop...




Sometimes we have to take pics like this sooo-
 5 or so years later when someone says-
 you never took me there-
WE HAVE PROOF!



Our Johnny has no recollection of going to Mount Rushmore...
But we have a pic of him being there!
Case closed!



There were 3 homes exactly alike for the three families that ran the lighthouse.



No matter where we are, 
they find cool bugs!



This is one of the pics that went to school with Em and El!
You can see hubby and some of the kids on the rocks below!



We had MANY wet shoes!



And we spent a portion of the time counting to 13!
To be sure everyone was here!



It was a gorgeous day!
Crisp, cool and SUNNY!



LOVE our boys!
(missing Ben)



It was a GREAT place to explore!



The girls gymnastics club encourages them to take handstand pics when ever on trips!
They have pics like these from all over the world!



Our girls wanted to add to the collection!



The children love science, love outdoors and love exploring!



We took a hike and everyone partnered up!



Photo op!



It was a mile and a half hike!



Admiring the falls!



And here is a pic of me and my sweet little boy!
Yes, I did get to go on the weekend getaway, too!
And this is proof!
