First Hike of the Season

We had a nice warm day today and since we didn’t make it to church for various reasons and Daddy really needed some time of quiet to work on school stuff, I took the boys on a nice long hike.

After enduring the stomach bug, potty training madness, and lots of snowy, stuck inside days, this hike was much needed for the boys and me. thumb_IMG_0429_1024

Sam said no less than twenty times that this was the best hiking day ever. He can’t wait to go back.

Sam was more brave this time and ventured ahead of the pack a lot. I love watching his leadership skills emerging. thumb_IMG_0433_1024

Timmy was a trooper and successfully completed his first solo hike (no more carrying this little boy!). He did start lagging behind toward the end, but after an hour and a half of hiking, who can blame him?

I’m 25 weeks pregnant today with our third little boy, so it was a good pace for me. We were sad Daddy couldn’t be with us, but I’m so encouraged by how well the boys and I managed without him. I forsee lots of hikes in the spring!
