Matthew has been asking to go on a hike for weeks, we finally decided to round up the baby packs and head up to the hills. The doctors had given the ok for us to do so if the conditions were right. So we cleaned up, steralized and masked the girls. The trail we took is only a few minutes from the house and was the perfect little hike for the kids.
It was beautiful, Tyler was able to look over the hill to his old house in Alpine where he grew up. The kids enjoyed the scenery, especially the big horn sheep. It was hard to hold back the urge to sing out "The hills are alive with the sound of music". Had I actually done that I would have scared every living thing off the hill. I hope someday, maybe in heaven, I will have a beautiful singing voice...hmm maybe not!
Natalie did well, she became tired easily, although, she did awesome for having recently been through so much. Alice was carried the whole time, but every once in a while she would pant like she was hiking with the rest of us. She played the part very well.
I would say the hike was the highlight of our day...and possibly week!
