Not Boulder Cave

Friday we decided we were going to Boulder Cave.  We were supposed to go back in May, but thanks to the stomach flu, we didn't make it.  So, we packed up the kids and some food, and drove up there...... find Boulder Cave was closed for maintenance until 2015.


So, we drove another half hour more before finding somewhere to stretch our legs.  It was somewhere called Bumping Lake.
 We went on a hike, and found places to throw rocks in the lake.
 Someone made this teepee and left it in the woods.  It was pretty cool.

At the end of our visit, I took the girls into the restroom/porta-potty before heading home.  Maddie did not want to use the toilet.  She had a death grip on my legs as I tried to get her situated on the toilet.  In our struggle, the hat she was wearing fell off her head, and fell down.... down.... down.... into the slime at the bottom.

Maddie refused to go potty.

Annie refused to get anywhere near that hole.

Maddie was bawling when we got back to Dad and Simon at the car.  I told Ryan it was not a successful trip.

We got back to Yakima and went to Costco before the twins went potty.

That night, as we were getting the girls ready for bed, Maddie prayed that she wouldn't remember her hat falling into the hole anymore.  I think I may have scarred her for life.
