Union Canal Tunnel Park

On Monday, while I was out shopping with my Mom in Lancaster, Dave took the boys on a hike at the Union Canal Tunnel Park in Lebanon.  This park boasts the oldest transportation tunnel in the United States, and, in the summer on Sunday afternoons, you can still take a boat ride on the canal and get an up-close-and-personal view of the tunnel.  On this day, Dave and the boys went on a  hike around the canal to see what they could see.  It was their first visit to this park, and in spite of the heat, they had a great time.  Even Nathaniel (age 2) did the hike on foot...I was impressed!  Here are some photos from their visit...

The boys love to find...and eat...berries on their treks

I hope Dave was paying attention...this photos scares me a bit!

The water is a bit murky, but still has a beauty all its own!

I'm thankful for my husband's willingness to take the boys on adventures such as this and make some good memories with them.  I'm also grateful that he allows me to venture out on my adventures with my Mom...in a house full of boys, I need that every once in awhile!!

That was so sweet of him to do that with the boys!! What a great guy... and I hope you had a lot of fun too (though you were in my part of town and I haven't seen you in forever!!!). It's hard to get outside and do anything in this heat. Have a good weekend!!!
