A happy group
At the top (we don't look too warn out, do we??)
Marcie and a sleepy Joshua
This past weekend, Marcie and I decided to make use of the gorgeous weather-- so we headed up the mountain to enjoy God's beautiful creation and get some exercise while we were at it. I had been putting off hiking for quite some time, not because I dislike it (I love hiking!!), but because of the logistics of bringing two little boys along for the ride. However, it being such a fine October day, and being well aware of the fact that there might not be too many more 75 degree Saturdays, we had to least make an attempt!!
So off we went. Marcie carried Joshua in the front carrier/pack, and I carried Isaiah in the Kelty backpack (thank you, Frits and Annemiek!!). It was quite a workout. I think we hiked roughly 3 miles, maybe a little more, but with us each touting 25+ pounds of chunky children, it was some good exercise for sure! We really enjoyed it. The mountains were alive with fall colors of red, orange, yellow, and green. It was so beautiful! The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows his handiwork-- Psalm 19:1
