Spring is in full bloom around these parts.
The birds are chirping and the trees branches have plump little green bulbs waiting to burst out to greet the sun.
Which means my allergies are in full swing once again, but hey it's perfect hiking season. And I'll take that.
The day after Lu and I did our 4th grade hike (last post) Claire and I went with some friends on another kind of hike...a tougher one...to the "Wave Cave."
I've posted pictures before of this one, which made Claire want to go, so get ready for some silhouette pics :)
Love being with that girl of mine.

These are the three musketeers of soccer this year and following their early-morning soccer game they were ready hike through some desert beauty.
