For Chris' birthday he wanted to take us on a (kid-friendly) hike, so he got off early on Friday and we picked up sandwiches at New Seasons on our way up to Lower Macleay trail. Chris runs on trails through Forest Park every Saturday morning before the boys and I are even awake, and though we hiked one of the trails when Bennett was Buck's age, Bennett had never really seen anything like it before.  He thought it was the coolest thing ever, and he's pretty much right. 
We are so blessed to have places like this practically in our own back yard!

Buck likes hiking:

He was running and I was trying to capture it. 
I think it turned out kind of cool actually:

Bennett had to stop and throw a rock in the water at every chance he got:

We stopped and had lunch across from this amazing, old moss-covered stone building:
(I did a little research and found out that it was an old public restroom...interesting.)

One last rock throw before we headed home:

That was the perfect hike for Bennett since it was only .8 miles each way and he LOVED it so we will definitely be back up there soon.

    So fun! Right now Pearl is in a weird stage where she doesn't want to be in the ergo, but she walks too slow for a hike. I can't wait until she is Bennett's age so we can get back into it!
