Belated Labor Day…

Sorry this post is late USA, but I spent my Labor day with hubby and the boys hiking and spending good quality time together…

Boy are way in the distance running up under that big tree in the middle of the picture.

We had one of the best hikes we have had had in a while. Beautiful scenery, not too hard of a hike where we couldn’t talk and enjoy the scenery, but hard enough we got a decent work out. The dogs had a great time and when we stopped to rest they couldn’t stop smiling.

It was a fun and blessed Labor Day… so for give my lateness… Happy Labor Day!

On the Rocks…

We have become a hiking family… whenever we can we hit the trails and explore. The pups are good at getting over the rocks and though tight spaces we have to walk in. We got a new pop up bowel for them to drink out of and our backpack holds enough water for up to a 2 hour hike. They are good company on the trails and sleep better when we get home. I hope the nice weather comes back so we can go hiking some more as we hate to hike when it is too hot as the pups can not enjoy it as much. We are trying to build up so we can tackle this really big hike up ‘old rag mountain’. My husband tackled it when he was younger and says it is a two-hour hike straight up. We will see if we get good enough this year 😉

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 🙂 Happy Wednesday!

Hikes and Battlefields…

It was such a nice day, perfect weather for a hike. We went to a local battlefield and hiked all over that place. The dogs were in heaven… they LOVE to hike and walk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My wonderful hubby carried my camera backpack so I coud have both my lenses at hand and it also allowed us to carry water and such.

When we first got to the battlefield there were some painters their painting a pond…

In the pond was a goose swimming, it almost looked as if he was posing for the painters.

A little further up the way and in the river there were two families of geese… Mom, Dad, and babies.

The fields had beautiful flowers in them today all in full bloom.

Then we went from the fields and river to the mountain. There were so many planes today…

The pups took a rest when we got back from the mountain on one of the old house steps.

On the way out of the battlefield we saw a bird we have a difference of opinion on what it was… any ideas?

I hope you all had a beautiful weekend with lots of fun and beautiful weather. Have a blessed week 🙂
