It was a really pretty hike.
Once we got to the falls, instead of checking out the amazing views, the kids needed to check out the amazing climbing opportunities - a big old tree stump.

I don't know if Luke was just making a sily face for the camera or it was his reaction to some of the smooching pictures Matt and I had just taken.
After Akaka Falls we decided to stop on the way back and see Waipio Valley. (I hope I spelled it right.) I believe these are the valleys they shot for Jurassic Park scenery.

While I was chasing after Luke down the insane hill, my sister Rachel was the lucky one who got to hold a very cranky Seth for me.
