We knew we needed to do something outdoors today. The weather was way too gorgeous for this time of year!! We decided to head over to Sunderbrunch for some hiking after Caleb got done with Bible study. While he was there, some friends from church sent a text asking if anyone was interested in a hike/picnic at Sunderbrunch…. haha! How fun!
We hiked some really fun trails and Tyler’s phone said we did about 3.5 miles in a little over an hour. Pretty good when you consider 4 adults were hauling at least one kid in a carrier, one stroller made it part of the way, and we had a total of 10 kids with us!
Just two little troublemakers on a dinosaur! haha
Our poor little bug collecting, bug loving, daughter Abby with her moth. “It’s the first one I ever caught!!” After this I had to explain to her that when you hold a moth too long, the dust on its wings can all brush off and then it won’t be able to fly and might not make it in life. She set it in a nice weed patch and we cheerfully hiked on, optimistically hoping for the best.
Evie dreaming wild dreams of crazy mountain bike riding.
Some of the group. I missed getting Darah in any of these pictures I see! We’ll have to fix that next time.
Hiker girls! The kids were all such troopers!
We found a cool wooden table with tall chairs! Girls, girls, girls! We love them! ❤ Of course, mine were the obstinate ones with me behind the camera….. *sigh*
Abby enjoyed the fast hike a few of us did. Her and Lily were the kid walkers that went for it. At one point she said, “My stomach is kind of hurting, but that’s good! Because it means it’s getting stronger!” (We’ve used this line on her quite a bit….haha!!) Elly was cracking up while we jogged. Apparently it’s pretty fun to bounce around in the carrier.
The end of the hike! We made it! Time for lunch!
