Drove to Springerville for a day at Sipe. Missed going last year b/c roads were closed from fire. You can see fire line on mountain ridge on property, but basically otherwise it looks exactly the same as before the fire. Weather just wonderful in the high 60's - threatened to rain later in afternoon. We started off in the museum looking at the "dead animals" as the very graphic and morbid 3 year old Caroline likes to say. How did they die Mommy? Why did they die? Who killed them? Can they be alive again? Can they bite me while they are dead? All very good questions - some tough to answer without laughing or just making things up. George is big into animal sounds and we did the best we could with some of the animals - like what sound does a javalina make. We did meow for anything resembling a cat and stretched it with a moo sound for an elk. It is kind of like a weird escalating moo sound. His favorite was the room full of ducks.

Then hiked the High Point Trail one mile round trip - brought a picnic lunch like we always do. Very lush and green all around - tons of wildflowers. Wish there was a HAZ photo section for kick-@ss nursing in public while on a hike photos. Know this crowd is probably totally grossed out by it - but I'm always proud to feed my kids out on the trail whenever they need it.

Played in the grass for a while after the hike and then headed back to Greer. Kids totally passed out exhausted for two hour nap. :zzz:
