Hiking with My Roommate

Hey, good people.  Hope everyone had a good Fourth. We spent the day with family -- eating, laughing, and watching fireworks on the lake.  It was perfect.  Of course I snapped a few pictures.  I'll post those soon.

We got our little one back from the in-laws a couple of days ago.  As usual, she loved being with her Honey and PaPa, and was NOT ready to come home. They give her candy and cookies and all those things grandparents do, so I'm pretty sure she loves them more than us - ha!

While the little one was away, the hubs and I took an afternoon to hike the trails of a local nature preserve.  We'd just eaten Mexican for lunch, so it was a great way to walk it off.

I've been wanting to check out this spot for a while now -- and take M. With her being away at the in-laws', it gave us an opportunity to evaluate the spot before taking her... opportunity to become familiar with the trails so that when we DO take her for the first time, we can focus on her safety without trying to learn the surroundings at the same time.  Does that make sense?

It's a very cool place. The boulders, streams, waterfalls, etc. were all beautiful. I was just hoping we didn't see too much wildlife, if you know what I mean. 

There WAS that big ol' squirrel that came out of nowhere that made both DK and me jump - ha!  I can deal with a squirrel, though.  I was more cautious of the wildlife that slither on the ground, you know? I'm not super afraid of snakes (remember?), I just don't want to run into one in the wild.  You know, accidentally step near one and scare it -- which would make the snake react -- which could be bad. I get chills just THINKING about it...

But nope, we didn't see anything that made me never want to go back.  What we DID see were families with children M's age, and those children were enjoying themselves immensely.  It made me miss M in the moment. She would have loved to take a picture right here:

The hike was a nice little workout for DK and me -- we both were kinda sore the next day. Though we were quite sweaty and dusty by the time we were done, the weather was good to us.  In fact, this summer's been good to us overall.  We've been enjoying temps in the 80s.

We'll go back to this cool little spot soon with the little one in tow -- I know she'll love it.  

I was glad my husband and I could spend a little time together just as a couple on this day, though.  We don't do that enough.  (Remember, it was on one of my summer goals?)

Enjoy your weekend, good people!
