Hawn State Park

After church today we drove down to Hawn State Park for some hiking. We hiked for nearly two hours on a strenuous trail with lots of climbing over rocks. The kids did great...Mommy was pooped! :) It's a good thing Jason drove home because I slept most of the way!

Riding Cody and loving it!

Aunt Angela and Aunt Joy have a horse and Isabella has been begging me to go riding all year (yes...it's been a long time since we rode him last!) Isabella has been horse obsessed for awhile now (I think just about every girl goes through that phase!). She also insisted that she could ride Cody by herself and wanted so badly to try. Finally we made the drive today and sure enough...she was right. With guidance from her aunties she was riding alone in the round pen by the time we left and doing a great job. Her mom was impressed at least! ;) 
Actually all the kids had a wonderful time riding and visiting the animals. Elsie was in love with the tolerant little tail-less cat and carried her around most of the morning. It was great fun all around!
