cress creek is one of my favorite places in this area. klayton and i sneak up all of the time to go hiking and enjoy the view of the valley. it's an awesome trail that is paved part-way up, and goes up and around in a loop. it's only about two miles long, but it is just so fun and pretty and close. avery loves it, too. she grabs at all of the trees, looks at all of the lizards that her dad chases, and shouts "HI!!!" at everyone who walks by. today klayton and i played with the self-timer on our camera and got some pretty sweet shots. check out my beautiful home!
