Last fall, we started a new family tradition of going on family hikes on Friday mornings. Most of the time, our schedule is flexible enough that we can work this in. Cam and I try to exercise through the week and this weekly arrangement had several benefits: it was an outing to look forward to, it met our need for physical activity, was quality family time, and hopefully instilled in the girls a love of the outdoors and the importance of physical activity. Each of us wears one of the girls in an Ergo- which we freaking love. It can still hold Lila pretty comfortably. If you have children, I highly recommend one. Or two. We only had one for awhile. Our sweet friends would let us borrow theirs every week until my Super-Awesome friend Rhonda actually gave us hers on permanent loan. Squee! I digress. Anyway, we had let this tradition slip during the winter months, but have gotten back into the habit. Here are some pictures I took on a recent hike to our
Northern boundary at Old Glory.
