Like to Hike!

After needing some peace and quiet after a rough few days we thought heading up to the mountains would be a nice retreat. But with rivers flooding we had to head down an unknown road which lead us to such a beautiful spot that we could oversee most of our town. The view was amazing!

 After taking in the view and exploring around alittle.

Mike made set up the fire and our kids found some sticks so we could start making dinner.
Something about campfire hot dogs and smores that brings a smile to everyone's face.
After  everyone was full from our delicious dinner that I didn't have to cook we cleaned up everything and went on a hike. Well.....the best we could with having 2 toddlers. About 25 yards into our hike Ducati started to get hives from an allergic reaction from ???something???
So we sat for a few minutes and enjoyed the view....

 Hailey really enjoys exploring as you can see. I asked her to smile and after 1 second she started to walk into a field of flowers. She's so fun!

Our 2 tots really love their daddy.

Even though we wanted to go further but with Cati's skin getting red we headed back to our van to clean her up from whatever touched her skin.

But as the kids and I started to walk back down the mountain I turned to see Mike just sitting in deep thought.

All most like he has the weight of the world on his shoulders. Whatever he was thinking I pray that the world takes it off his shoulders soon.

This was a great evening together as a family. No TV, No phone calls, No facebook (haha).....just us. That was nice!
