I of course, choose "Adventure"
Jeff and I like to hike and from being pregnant to carrying them, the boys have always joined us.
But as they grew and could no longer be carried their enthusiasm for hiking did not grow.
So in an effort to avoid the complaining I no longer called it a "hike" but an "adventure"...
It didn't take long for them to make the connection... bright boys
Not only did I get to choose what I wanted to do, but there was no whining allowed!
We headed to the Gorge to explore some "new to us" trails. This is my favorite kind of adventure. When you don't really know what will happen along the way.
Here we are at the end. Of course to get back means to swim the ice water again...
Jeff and I then did another trail leading up another stream to what was supposed to be "triple falls" but there was only one fall? But it was beautiful and it involved some waist deep ice water. We felt so adventurous!
After our various hikes the 6 of us headed to Red Robin to celebrate birthdays. When we told our waiter that 4 of the 6 of us had birthdays (Ty 29th, Me 3rd, Jeff 4th, and Mom 8th) she didn't bat an eye and we all were treated with birthday sundays and singing.
Today is my Mom's birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! You are an amazing, inspiring, strong woman and I'm so thankful you're my Mom! Love you!
