We'd like to become a family that hikes, so on Saturday we made an attempt. We went to Bear Creek Nature Center, which was the location of an ill-fated field trip in May. Remember how Kate lost her sandal that day? Guess what! Someone found it and turned it in, so we got it back. I was so excited!
Here are some pictures from our hike. On hiking trips past--when I have gone alone with the kids--Lexi has always been enthusiastic. Not so on this day. Garry and I had girls on our shoulders a good portion of the way, but extra sweat is good for us, right?
We made a few wrong turns along the way. Once we ended up in a little clearing that was scattered with bones. We didn't stay there too long.
All told, we hiked for about an hour and went 2.25 miles. The kids declared it a success, and we hope to find more [very low key] places to hike in the future.
