Summer Hiking {Mom-day}

Oh Summer- You are so fleeting!  Only three weeks left before the start of school.  We are trying to cram as much as we can into these last few glorious days.  Yesterday we went on a hike.  My 9 year old had the camera most of the time:

Alpine Flowers in Bloom.

Our Destination

I did take the camera back near the end of the hike so I could capture this:

My 2 year old’s epic fit because I wouldn’t carry her down the mountain in the back pack.  {She did get to ride the entire way UP the mountain in it}  Nothing like crying and screaming echoing off the mountain.  Lovely.
It was a beautiful day- aside from the swarms of mosquitoes and my kids and I had a blast.  Hope you’re off enjoying the last hurrah of summer as well.

    Beautiful, Amy! Looks like a great time. I know that "why won't you carry me?" fit all too well 🙂

    That's funny about your 2-year old's epic fit. Also it's funny how things can be interpreted:

    My 5-year-old started Kindergarten yesterday, and for the first time he rode the bus to school this morning. When I saw your picture, what I saw was my lone child going off into the huge world without me there…. Sad and sappy ,huh?

    At the same time, I don't miss the epic temper tantrums of his younger age!

    In spite of the fit, it's a great picture 🙂

    Looks like a great day! I have a similar picture of my son. Now that he is older he get a big kick out of seeing pictures of him when he was naughty!
