Gone for a Hike

Yesterday we decided to take the kids out for a hike. Get them out of the house and busy in the fresh air. I didn't know what to expect, every time we go anywhere it turns into a Griswold type of adventure.

It took a good 30 minutes to get everybody dressed properly. I stopped fighting with Justin when he came out of his room in his "Chucks" and snow hat.

Eventually everybody makes it to the car. Ready or not, here we come.

Bryan: "I packed a knife in the backpack."
Me: "Why?"
Bryan: "In case I get my arm caught in a boulder and I have to cut it off."
Me: "I guess you never can be too prepared can you now James Franco?"

After that gem of a conversation I was wondering if we were going to make it at all. Thankfully we did make it.

After a brief stop at the most disgusting bathrooms EVER, we were off.

It was a perfect day for hiking. Thankfully it wasn't 90+ degrees like it had been the day before.

Me: "Justin you are one of a kind."
Justin: "Yep, I sure am one of a kind!"

I spy with my little eye...

"I'm ready to take a normal picture now mommy."

Justin's homage to all those who rocked!

A beautiful day with those that I love. I am a very lucky lady!
