Raven Rock field trip

After looking at today's tempature (70's) earlier in the week I made the decision to take a field trip.  JD worked so hard all week (and with just his vitamins) that we packed up and went to Raven Rock State Park.  It's about a 30 mile trip to the park.  We walked on two different trails for about a 3.25 mile walk.  I knew JD would complain, but geesh...

Daniel, Sarah, and the grandgirls came along too.  We stopped by Subway and picked up a foot long sub.  We picnicked at the bottom of the Raven Rock trail.  We had to walk down 50 long steps and 100 normal wooden steps.  But it was worth it.  Here's a picture of Daniel and Suri looking at the map.   

Since we walked down 150 steps we had to...you guessed it...walk back up.  Ugh!
Cool roots

Us at Overlook

The next trail was Overlook. 

Throwing rocks
The next trail was Fish Traps.  The Cape Fear River was so low that we could walk on the rocks in the middle of the river.   We were not the only homeschool families out there.  One of the moms commented about our homeschool t-shirts.  Mine says, "Homeschool Rocks!"  JD's says, "It's ok to use big words, I'm homeschooled."

Coming back up the hill was NOT fun.
Around the first bend
Up, up, and away
More stairs
