Fall Reflections

 We were able to spend a few absolutely gorgeous days at Clear Creek State Park last month (accommodations thanks to my parents, once again, and weather, thanks to GOD!).  It was warm, and wonderful to get away! 

Our attempt at a family picture!

Skipping rocks...even Alliyah was trying!  The Clarion River was very low.

Happy 14th Anniversary!  My parents offered to keep the kids and let us go out to dinner, but we were just having too much fun to leave the kids and go...who wants to skip a campfire and mountain pies with the kiddos?

The next day we took a little trip down Corbett (my maiden name : )) Road  and went to Beartown Rocks.

Zach was fearless!  Climbing anywhere he could.

Wonder where he gets that? (Frank is on the left side of the picture...on the side of the rock!)  This was the PERFECT climbing rock!  Frank said it even had natural hand holds in the holes! 

Kaity let me take a few pictures (a rare thing!) ...this was one of my favorites...even if it's a little blurry.

Here is Liah...sitting on her "baby rock"...all the rocks were Mommies or Daddies or babies!

Flash forward to senior pictures...(really only 5+ years away! UGH!)

Elli helping Liah climb some rocks...♥ sisters ♥

Nathaniel the explorer

♥  Father - Son time ♥

A couple of the family pyromaniacs...  : )

Our last morning there we went for a hike on "The River Trail"...Breathtaking!

Reading the map...trying to decide if we had time to go the long way...unfortunately, we didn't.  : (

The girls...posing for another picture!! : )

God blesses us so richly...we need only to open our eyes to see the beauty, the splendor of His creation!
