Morning Hike

We went on an adventure today, and the kids had a blast. We went hiking at Beaver Creek (or "Crik", as a very good friend of mine says, whose first name starts with an "M" who lives in Calgary.........hee, hee), as well as on a scavenger hunt that is organized by the staff of Beaver Crik. The above picture is the kids studying the objects that they had to locate.


Seth loves wooden bridges. Hannah hates them. Consequently, he ran out on all of the bridges on our expedition (there were at least four of them), while Hannah cautiously went across with me close beside her.


It was the perfect hiking weather. Very few bugs. A perfect morning to begin our day. The kids want to go back as soon as possible and take daddy with them. Perhaps Hannah can actually FIND all of the items on the list. It was difficult because Seth wanted to forge ahead, but Hannah, the private eye, wanted to inch her way so as not to miss a thing. When we go back, I think I'll take one trail with Seth and let Hannah go investigating with her dad on another.

Rachel and Jenna are sad you didn't ask them to go on the adventure with you. Oh, well, maybe next time. They can teach them how to use a map and compass...as long as they have the map turned the right way! lol.

Jackets and hats...O I wish it were so here. I consider converting to Baptist every year around now because of the heat here...(think bermuda shorts and a tank. Ok ok so its not that bad but I keep thinking life is too short to live in this heat!! I wish I lived up north. I told Pastor that once and he said *Your gonna have a loong drive to church*...sigh...

All that to say the nature walk looks lovely!!!

Laura: My excursion was very "spur of the moment" but I would love to have them come some time. Hannah would be enthralled with learning to use a compass.

GT: I'll live down South in the winter and you can live up North in the summer. How's that for an idea?

RG: If I had more than two children then I think it would be in my best interest to bring along daddy!
