Summer style hikin' in the Winter!


Today was a BEAUTIFUL day!!!
It was perfectly warm, sunny, and saturday... we had all four kiddos so we decided to take them to the park we're getting married at and go hiking. *PLUS, I needed to earn some "activity points" on weight watchers since I had one to many beers last night!*
It was sooo much fun though and I have tons of pictures!
I think the kids enjoyed all the activities and sites we saw.... One thing we did was climb up snowy, muddy hills!

The next 2 pics are from the top down of the two biggest hills we climbed...


Then, of course, what goes up..... must come down!! Every hill we went down was an ice slide pretty much! These 2 pics are of the smaller hill...



This next hill was a doozy...
Here's a pic I tried to take of Zaky going down... as u can see, he was going faster then I could catch it on the camera!
And the butt shot.... it's how all of our asses looked after this hill...




We even packed our own lunches and took a small break in the middle of it all :-)

(Zane looks so bad ass with his bandana...)

We got some awesome family pics too....

(We're pretty sure this is the "spot" in the park that we're getting married at...)

We saw these amazing ice jams!!!

And finally, this is how the ride home looked :-)
