Ashleigh and Raymond were visiting Ithaca as part of an informal Cornell reunion weekend. Ashleigh’s neighbor from the DC area (who’s a photographer) suggested that they get some Ithaca-themed family photos while they were in the area.
Taughannock Falls State Park (pronounced Tah-gan-uck) is one of our family’s personal favorites for the very flat trail along the creek and spectacular waterfall at the end. We didn’t do the whole trail, but Ashleigh and Ray proved to be quite adventurous.
This is the overlook above the falls.
Baby Ray was all smiles – he especially loved the oinky pig.
This spot is early on the trail and required some climbing over rocks meant to keep people like us from going down there. It was especially challenging pregnant (me, not Ashleigh :).
They were even willing to get their feet wet.
Then Ray decided he wasn’t quite so sure about the oinky pig any more and it might just about be nap time…
But not before we snuck in some mommy and daddy love.
