Longest Day of the Year

To celebrate the longest day of the year Monday- we decided it was time to go on a hike. Aunt Jolene was kind enough to let us borrow their car (which was much faster and more fun than trying to get there by bus).
Our hike was to the top of Humpback Ridge- It was fantastic how a little increase in altitude saved us from the 90-something degrees that it was in the valley
T0 finish off our hike, we found a "swimmin' hole." Okay, so it was actually a small lake in Mint Springs Park that even had a lifeguard, but I'm going to call it a swimmin' hole based on the fact that it also doubled as a stocked trout pond. Cam spent a significant amount of our time swimming trying to catch a fish by pouncing on it.
I on the other hand took a nap on a blanket in the grass, which was great except for the two (bug?) bites I now have on my derrière. I voted against us living in Virginia based on the fact that there are an awful lot of bugs.
