I went down to see Mike for the Labor Day weekend where we had many adventures and opportunities to take pics for the hunt! I posted the pics following this one. I had a lot of fun visiting him and Lauren. This pic shows Mike's new city! Maybe mine in the future?

There is this little area deep into the hills where there is a waterfall that falls into a little pool of water, where Mike's pic is taken, and then that pool of water waterfalls into the bigger pool of water, Erin is taking a pic with the lower one. In the pool of water the lower waterfall falls in is a place to jump off into which is approx. 15ft. If you keep going down the water there is another place to jump into the pool that's approx. 45ft.!!!!! I didn't jump off the big one but i jumped off the 15ft. one!
Lanell found these friends in Manteca, what a pack of doggies! The Great Dane is 3 year old Carla and she was not happy her mom was taking our picture. She finally settled down for this shot while the labs were happy to just kick back for a minute. They said they usually roller blade with the Dane pulling them. Yikes!

We live on a very long court in an obscure Manteca, CA neighborhood where no ice cream truck "has ever gone before". Really, we have heard only 2 or 3 ice cream trucks in our court in the 20 years we have lived here so when this truck came by the other day we all jumped up and ran for the camera and the door to stop him. We quickly found some money for Taylor to get a fudgesicle. Check out the website for ice cream truck melodies.
Louise is herself :),mom, grandma and great grandma and that makes 4 generations...yipeee!
Mark, Lanell, Leisa, Eddie, Kaylyn (1), Dan, Carrie, Taylor (3 almost 4), Cameron (1).
Remind me of this with every decision
Generations will reap what I sow
I can pass on a blessing
To those I will never know.
Team Mahaffie-Dan and Carrie in Manteca CA
We have been telling our friends about the snapshot scavenger hunt fun and our friend Mark Keasling told us about his 1970's Classic Schwinn 5 speed tandem bike with drum brakes that he purchased at a garage sale for the bargin price of $100. The tires have rotted since it's last outing but what fun to have!
Dan and Carrie were on a short vacation driving through Redding CA and decided to visit the Sun Dial (foot) Bridge. Besides walking across the bridge you can rent segues and "drive" across. It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
Team Mahaffie found this purple home with purple stairs in Sacramento. We just cruised the old neighborhood asking the postman, slow passing cars, and a cyclist, before we found it. Our last ditch effort was to go one more block to catch the UPS guy but the house appeared out of nowhere before we got to him. One (legal) U turn and we snapped this pic.
