Franklin Mountain

Our first hike in Texas!  A quick little one mile trip to see what the trails were like. 

We had hiked up to the little cave in the mountain. 
We clearly need more appropriate footwear!

Growing Up!

The Baby Bean, who is now a five year old big boy, just refuses to stop growing up!  

Today, he decided to ride his pedal bike and did a beautiful job after just a few tries!  
He has been riding a balance bike for ages so he had the balance down and only needed to learn how to pedal.  
Apparently learning to pedal is much easier than learning to balance! 
The mingled feelings of pride for his big boy accomplishment, and sadness at his growing up so quickly come much more regularly than I care to admit. 

Out In The West Texas Town of El Paso

We made it to Texas and are settling in.  There are so many things to do, and we only have a year.  We need to get hiking and climbing as soon as possible!
Dad checked in to his new duty station. 
We were assigned housing and had our household goods delivered and taken out of the boxes. So much to sort and put away!
Introduced to a new vinegar for collared greens!
Checked out some of the pools on base. 
We embraced our inner cowboy. 
The Little Bean was able to endulge her inner carnivore. (She are the entire 10 oz steak.)
More pools!
And even a pool with a rock climbing wall!
Even dad got in on the fun!
