we spent the weekend eating, hiking, fishing, playing games, swimming, and just enjoying the warm weather and good friends. the mommas even snuck away for pedicures, leaving all the kids with the men. more than once before this trip i just about called it and was going to bail. life gets in the way sometimes, ya know? but i just really wanted this weekend away with friends and i knew gracie would have a blast with all the other little kids (which she did) so we made it happen and i'm glad we did.
|on the road! both girls actually did really well both ways.|
|digging for rock treasures at glitter mountain|
|gracie was a pretty good little hiker. she's not had much experience hiking - we need to get her out more this summer. she even "peed in the bushes!" it was awesome. totally proud mom moment ;)|
|found a frog (toad?) in the pond area we stopped at. the kids traumatized it for sure.|
|we made up our own version of telestrations one night after the kids went to bed. it got pretty interesting!|
a couple of the best ones of the night that had us rolling.
|the whole gang! (minus baby juniper). not exactly in focus, but the best we could get.|
