Ice Cave

I took this picture today. Do you know what my 7 year old is doing? He's getting ready to throw a snowball. What a difference from a few days ago when it was over 100 degrees here.

Today we hiked the Ice Cave trail in the Mt. Baker National Forest. If you live in the Seattle Area, it's well worth the drive and the hike. The kids had a blast. They walked on the snow. The slid on the snow. The fell on the snow. The threw snowballs. They even shivered! All on the first day of August.

it looks fantastic there! I bet it was a relief too with all the HOT weather you guys had been having over the past few days. Looks look all were enjoying their time too! it always amazes me about ice caves; there were a few in Montana when we lived there that we visited. Funny it could be cool there but warm close by.

sounds like a wonderful adventure for a summer day!

and can you believe it is August already??

betty

Tip for your son: keep the elbow up and no one will dare mess with him in a snowball fight.

are you wearing shorts while standing next to a snow cave? I'd be wrapped in three wool blankets.

Wow. I would so love to be there right now. We went to our river hose this weekend and it was 121. 121!!! I thought I was going to melt. So we pretty much swam in the water ALL day!
