Hike

Xander and I did an 8 mile hike in Forest Park. One of my kids actually wanted to do a longer hike with me and did great! Woohoo! Hiking buddy!

I have always been interested in backpacking, since my guided backpacking trip in college, and I’m hoping to start collecting gear and do a trip soon. Xander is definitely interested, and maybe Simon too!

This tree garland had notes from children, thanking someone for teaching them about the forest and also hoping that that someone doesn’t die. We wondered if that someone was the tree itself??

I love seeing Xander get overwhelmed by the beauty of it all and break out his iPod for a photo…

Xander’s new prescription sunglasses are working out nicely.
