"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Family Hike

I love the outdoors.  Hiking is one of my favorite pastimes.  You probably wouldn't know that about me because I hardly ever do it!  It seems Dallas and I often think of the work involved in hauling three kids up to the mountains rather than focusing on the reward once we get there.

Spur of the moment, we decided we were going!  We threw camp chairs in the Tahoe, ran by Smith's for a rotisserie chicken, and off we went!  We were Strawberry bound.

 It's a shame that we live so close to this and don't take advantage of it.

We had a quick dinner, and then set off.  It was a perfect evening.  We kept debating about who liked it the most, and I think it was Scooter!  I think he was actually smiling the entire time.

Paige was a close second.  She was soaking up all of the scenery.
We are already planning our next small adventure!


  1. We love hiking too. It's so much fun! In a couple years we will be able to take the boys hiking for real and we can't wait!!

  2. I Love Hoodie Days! I can't think of anyone that doesn't look Good in a Hoodie. And there is nothing better than a good relaxing Hike
