We do the Grotto Hike at least once every summer! It is so fun and kid-friendly with log bridges that cross over a stream, it is short and not too steep and ends at a beautiful waterfall. I thought it would be fun to put a few flashback pictures on this week since this is something we do every summer.
Above: Andrew at the Grotto in 2008. He was 2, now AJ wears this outfit!
Below: Emma and Julia sitting on a rock, 2008. Similar to the picture below of Emma and AJ on the same rock. These pictures are of our Grotto hike June 2011. We went with a big group of friends and Julia was happy as can be to be with so many of her friends.

Holly, Val and Lisa surrounded by children. Lisa was so sweet to come with me and help with kids even though her own kids couldn't come this year.
Julia always likes to hike to the top of the waterfall.
Julia and her friends attempted going behind the waterfall, but this is as far as they made it.
Emma was a little nervous about crossing the bridges since she fell off one of them.
Emma all wet but still happy!
