Hiking and Happiness

The weather this week has been beautiful. Even a little shower that lasted only a few minutes was nice.

Considering how hot it has been all summer this weather relief was very appreciated and allowed us to get a lot done outside as well as do some exercising. The boys have loved hiking with us this year as we are going farther, so much so some days they need to stop more than us.

We got a new pack this year so we can carry more water and their collapsible bowel, but they still like to drink from the streams when we come across them. This one park we went to has a beautiful view from the top of one of the trails.

The last two photos were taken from hubbys phone as I forgot my camera and it would have been hard to carry with the climb. I turned the photo of the dogs to sepia filter as I thought it looked neat. They were checking out the mile and a half trail we just walked straight up this mountain. It was a fun hike that we hope will get us in better shape πŸ™‚ Happy Wednesday!

    We’ve been enjoying it too. In a few weeks we’re going to northern Michigan for a vacation. Should be interesting to experience a little bit different climate.
