ozark state park

yesterday we did a 4 mile loop as we try to fine tune our hiking shape for our trip to the smokies. 2 weeks and counting. it was a fun trail that wound up and down the ozark hills. some scenic overlooks a couple streams and lots of, "ashes ashes we all fall down" being sung from a certain individual strapped to my back. 

as you can see from our last picture we ended up locking the keys in the car as we were packing up to head home. sheesh. david sperling, our new hero, saved our lives. we tried to hit the unlock button with a stick but were unsuccessful. big surprise huh? i had to hitch a ride down to the ranger station and called david, who then drove me home to get the spare keys and then back to the park to tessa and the kids who had to wait for over two hours for that whole process to work itself out. i don't even want to know how many times they sang its raining is pouring.....
