Mountain Hike

Another fantastic weekend! It was filled with farmers markets, bike rides (more on that later!) and family hiking. Also, the weather couldn't have been more perfect. 78 and sunny is my perfect temperature. Today's 90+ temp, not so much.

A few weeks ago I (along with Tindra) chaperoned Jasper's kindergarten field trip to bair of the lair for hiking. It's about 30 minutes away from us, at the base of the rocky mountains. A perfect little getaway!  The hiking was so perfect and child friendly that we knew we needed to bring Drew along with us. So about midnight as we were going to bed Saturday night I turned to Drew and said, tomorrow we are going hiking. He grunted a reply which I took as a yes.

8:05 AM we were on our way, Starbucks and Bruegers bagel in hand!

Tindra and Jasper both did amazing. T absolutely hates being restrained, she doesn't enjoy our stroller walks anymore because of it, but she does amazing in the hiking back pack!

As we were leaving we were told that on mothers day (just two days after we went there with jasper's class) there was a mamma black bear walking around the picnic area where tons of families were enjoying the day. Talk about scary!!

I can't wait to find more kid friendly hikes this summer! But they are all definitely going to have to be early morning hikes before it gets ridiculously hot.


  1. i just love your family adventures!

  2. what a nice day! I love going on mountain hikes, but it´s been few of those the last couple of years (Eastern Norway doesn´t have much mountains nor exciting nature), but when I lived in the North, I often went on mountain hikes!
