Lena’s Haircut

The Before

OK, this is big news everyone… I know you are all dying to see Machu Picchu pictures, but this is way more important. We have all been waiting a long time for this day! Lena has finally cut her dreads… Of course we’ve captured the whole two-hour long ordeal in glorious stop motion. It was a pretty rough and tedious job for me, and I think pretty painful for Lena. I tried to be as careful as possible, but honestly, I wanted to be finished as fast as possible! In the end though I was pretty proud of my handsome work- Hopefully Lena is too.

I think in this moment, Lena is beginning to wonder why we brought her to the woods.

A few photos from hiking in the Appalachian Mountains in Smoky Mountains National Park, near Cherokee, North Carolina. It was a beautiful walk through green forest, along a small creek. We wanted to swim, but the water was so cold. It felt great on the aching feet towards the end of the hike though. We made Lena walk 7 miles that day, and she started getting a little cranky. But she made it in the end, all the way back to the car.
