A few weeks ago we went with my parents to Cowan's Gap State Park, a beautiful place in the mountains near Altoona. I just found the pictures from that adventure. We swam and paddle-boated in the lake, hiked the mountain, and enjoyed being in such a natural setting.
Annie and Poppy scouted out the perfect picnic bench by the lake.
While taking a break from swimming laps in the lake, Annie sported her trendy beach cover-up.
We had so much fun (and got so much sun!) paddle-boating around the lake. It was beautiful!
All ready for the hike up the Horseshoe Trail. See Annie in Brant's backpack??
The trail was marked at a high difficulty, but we figured we could handle it. Boy, it was steep!!
On the way back down, Annie refused to be in the backpack anymore. She was so tired. So I carried her like a little baby all the way across the backside of the mountain. Luckily it wasn't steep anymore. :)
Walking around at the overlook
What a lovely summer vacation!
P.S.-- Today is my 25th birthday! Brant, Annie, Memphis, and I are are about to leave for some more adventures!
