Hiking with young kids...

...It's an interesting thing! We went hiking with Matt's brother and family today. We got up had breakfast, Leyton took a nap, Adriah and Matt went swimming - it was freezing, I cleaned and got the bag ready for our hike! We met up with the Hedricks at 11am and then got to the trail at 11:45pm. So, picture this, a 4 month strapped to Matt, a 3 year old who trips constantly and teenagers who want to explore...and parents who just want to set up pictures. It worked but, needless we didn't last long. I'll upload the pictures when I get home so you can see our pack!

It was fun and we're still having fun...my kids are sleeping. Angie (sis-in-law) and I are playing Scramble through Facebook and the rest went on another hike. (A real hike...the work up a sweat you need running shoes not flip-flops kind of hike!)

We'll go swimming and eat dinner together tonight then Matt and I will head home tomorrow. It's been a great time away but, I'm ready to go home...especially since we put a bid on a house last week and we're in final negotiations. YIKES! I can't believe I just wrote that out-loud...buying a house is such a big deal! I can't believe we're doing it. We low-balled a foreclosure and they countered so we took the weekend to think about it. I'll keep you posted!

Well, that about sums it up for now. Never a dull moment in my life.
