Quick gettaway to the Mountains...

Stopping for 'bocadillos' (sub-type sandwiches) on the way!
Life has been so busy at the start of this fall, but we made a point of getting away one day that we had free.  The kids had a day off one Monday, and the weather had been so beautiful, so we decided to escape to the mountains for the day.

It's so tiny in this pic, but at the very top of that peak is a white cross.

It was a holiday, so the area was extremely crowded with people.  In this natural park, there are several areas for picnicking and even making paella, but those spots were so full of people.  Our goal was to get away, so we traipsed up into the mountain side with our bagged lunch and found a little ravine that was just off the trail.  There's not a whole lot of grassy spots here in Spain... rocks seems to be the norm. :)  So, we found a big rock to spread out our meal, and everyone found a little "seat" nearby!

After eating, Carolina decided her "seat" needed to become a "stage."  :)
We ate our bocadillos and then the boys wanted to explore.  Carolina decided she wanted to stay and build a city with rocks.  So the boys took off and Carolina and I began to build!

Once the boys returned, they helped build, too!  Daddy was the best at getting the big rocks all stacked up on top of each other.

Once we finished our city of rocks, we decided to go check out the rest of the natural park.

We tried several times to get a family pic, but man is it hard! :)  These were our best two... wrinkled noses and lots of squinting. :) ... but we sure had fun together!
