There is a beautiful waterfall at Tremont in the mountains. It's a one-mile hike up, and the trail's not exactly smooth. Our "hikes" are usually taken at the pace of the little ones, so we haven't been there for a while. But the time had come. 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 is an excellent age to take your first two-mile hike, don't you think? The weather was perfect. The flowers were blooming. The bird's were chirping. Plus it was my birthday. We had to go.
All the kids were great hikers. They all hiked the whole way up the mountain. And everybody was happy. We had a picnic lunch by the falls.
Larkin went fishing.
Anybody know what this is? This month's National Geographic issue had an article about the endangered fish in the area. (I read it after the hike.) I hope this isn't one of them.
On the way back, Jeremiah carried Rohan part of the way. But it was mostly downhill, and Rohan wanted to run some too. He was excited to get home for birthday cake! :)
What a sweet family I have! They made my day so special.
P.S. Jeremiah took some of these pictures too.
