Is there anything more fun than having a missionary come home? Aaron came home from his two year mission in Monterrey, Mexico complete with a sweet little Mexican accent. We were so happy to welcome him home! Beth, Ian, and Emma came out from Utah for a short trip so they could be here too.
The next day we packed up and headed to Virginia to a nice campground on the New River to spend a couple of days of quality time camping.
On Friday we drove to Mt. Rogers to what must be my family's favorite hiking spot. Seriously, this place is beautiful and unique in so many ways.
Usually the wild ponies are hard to miss, but we had to go looking for them this time. But we found them! And when we did, they started following us. They must get fed a lot.
Before we left we did some canoeing, kayaking, and tubing on the river. So fun!
It was kind of a whirlwind, but we loved being in some beautiful places and being together. And of course we loved chasing around this firecracker.
