Our Sunday Hike

We recently declared Sunday as our family day. But I am beginning to think that it would be better if Saturday becomes our family day, because between church and football, our Sundays fill up quickly.

This past Sunday, we went on a hike at a nearby park that I found online after searching for easy hiking trails in the area. When traveling with three young ones and a double stroller, you need easy.

I discovered there was such a park nestled within a neighborhood about 20 minutes away. It was funny, because as we approached the park, hubby was all sorts of confused. You would never know that hidden among the houses were miles of beautiful trails.

It was so beautiful. We were immersed in greenery. There was also a little creek that ran alongside some of the trails. The air smelled so crisp and clean. The kids had such a wonderful time.

The miss(4 1/2) wanted to run through the trails, eager to see what was around the corner, or what the next trail had in store. She is like her mommy in that way. I hardly ever slow down. The mister(2) walked slowly, taking it all in. He wanted to study everything. He walked around with his finger out most of the time, pointing to the various plants, trees, flowers and even the clouds. The baby boy (6 months) slept most of the time, surprisingly. The trail was bumpy and in his stroller, he was off-roading.

We stopped at a little picnic table next to the creek to eat our picnic dinner and it was a nice time. It was great to get out of the house. The kids LOVED it.
The park is pretty close to Tiff's house. So we are going to go again on Saturday with her kiddos.

My camera is pretty much useless, so I didn't get any pictures of our hike. I did find some pictures of the park online, including the one at the top of the post, so I am going to share them with you.

Gorgeous, isn't it?

Hopefully when we go again this weekend, Tiff will bring her camera, so that I can share pictures of the kiddos with you.
