I love the month of May. Please don’t end.
It is so weird and so random and you just never know what you’re gonna get.
The most beautiful Saturday weather came and found us last weekend, and so we decided to take the kids for a little hike. And by “little” I mean longest, steepest hike with very misleading trails that lasted for 3 hours.
But I love him. And he’s adorable. And he won’t be little forever. And I prefer to be his leading lady for as long as possible. Look who’s at the top. R hearts A. Oh he did walk for a second of that three hours. It had escaped my memory. EBug insisted on wearing her purple sandals. They are pretty much just an extension of her feet now. And I am sure that I don’t even need to mention who picked out her own sandals this year and why.
Sidenote: She does not like for the straps to tuck under the second part of the buckles. Quirky. And she says the sandals remind her of eggplant. Interesting. I was so proud of this girl. She hiked like a champ. Singing “I’m climbing my mountain. Step by step. I’m climbing my mountain. Day by day. I’m climbing my mountain. All the way. I’m gonna make it.” If you don’t know that Psalty song, I’m sad for you. And your childhood.
But seriously. She did not complain once. And bounded up the rockiest of rocky paths like a little billy goat. She’s outdoorsy. Probably didn’t get that from me. And this guy did not complain once either! But he did have it pretty easy. The trail ended just in time. Lez-be honest. Meltdowns were imminent. But it was a gorgeous experience.
Rob says we should hike part of the Appalachian Trail as a family….Crickets.
