A Hiking We Will Go

We took Connor on his very first nature hike Saturday.  We woke up at the crack of dawn & headed to Starbucks for coffee then to the trails.  Poor little Connor was so tired, but he quickly livened up and was ready to go! 

We had a good time as a are a few pics of the day:
Getting ready to go!
Connor loved playing with the camel back
Connor loved riding in his kid carrier & it was a great workout for Terence too! ha..ha..

It's called a Deuter Outdoor Kid Carrier.  We got lots of questions about it while we were out, so I thought I would share what kind it was.
 Drinking lots of water
Here I am with my "spider stick".  It was almost comical the amount of spiders we encountered.  It seemed like every two steps we would walk through another spider web.  Ick! Ick! Ick!  We were also attacked by ginormous horse flies.  Next time we'll be covering ourselves in bug spray, but I'd rather just wait until fall to do this again so it's not so hot and all the buggies are DEAD!
We had a great time together & I'm thankful to God for my boys and the blessings that they are in my life! 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too :-)

Great pictures! Looks like y'all had a pretty good hike. I can't wait until Fall so it's at least a little more bearable outside.

Sounds like an awesome weekend indeed- especially the part where you stopped by Starbucks before the hike ;)
