A great day for a hike- Memorial Day 2012

What a beautiful day in Colorado. Perfect to check out a new hiking trail. After a wrong turn and an extra up hill climb to a saddle back we found our way . It was a beautiful hike through woods with open meadows. Lovely.
 Sometimes you just have to stop and look up.

 Our picnic spot today.
 Our big girl. She got to get out of the pack for a while and do some hiking.
 Our three great little hikers after getting refueled at our little picnic spot on the trail.

 Ethan was so excited to find read animal (deer) bones on the trail.  He said that..." it was such a great adventure today."
What a great day. I am so Thankful.

 Oh this was so fun: On my Birthday, The girls and I surprised Ethan for lunch at school. He was so excited. We got to go out and have recess with him as well. 
 That night we had Ellie's Pre-K choir Program. She did great.
 Claire LOOOVES her Sashy. And Sasha loves her too.
Good times with the ice cream truck.

From my Birthday-ish

 Ethan took this pic of me reading to the kids.
 I love this pic of Claire and Jace. To me, they look like an old married couple posing in a church directory or something
 Ahhhh.. I caught Ethan in character.
