So on Saturday, we loaded up the car and took off out of town...ya right! Actually, we drove up the street and hiked the Mountain's Edge hill. It was very pleasant, mostly due to the wonderful weather over the weekend, which made it totally fun. Tons of people were out and about. The best part of hiking the trail was watching Bryanna hike most of the way up, she was a trooper! When she would get tired, she'd turn to Mark and say, "I want a hug!" I loved watching her have fun. It was challenging enough (not to mention carrying a 24 lb. baby up the hill didn't make it any easier) but short enough that kids can do it too. Next time I will definitely do the longer route now knowing what to expect. I always like to find something to do outside that gets my heat rate up so I'm not subject to my running path around my house (although that isn't so bad if I don't have to push both the kids every time in the double jogger! I like a good workout, but I'm not a masochist!!!)
If only the weather was pleasant year round...what would it be like? Would we be outside all of the time doing something fun, or would we get used to it and take the good weather for granted? I can only imagine the list of activities I would have lined up for every Saturday! If only...If only!!!
