Beautiful day

The family and I decided to go hiking over the weekend. My sister and niece came with us. My sis suggested Catawaba Falls. It was, oh about 1 1/2 or 2 miles maybe. The kids did it easily and the sights up to the falls were lovely too. Once we got to the falls we were all a little hot, so we took our shoes and socks off and played in the water. It felt so good. Josh and I got a wild hair and climbed up the falls a little bit. It was just so beautiful.

This is the view from the bridge we crossed to start the hike

Josh about halfway up the falls (we got a wild hair to climb the falls)

Oh, a side note... the baby backpack carrier thing is wonderful!!! I have used it on a little walk, but it hasn't been tested on a hike until now. Josh carried Acacia and agreed that it was so much more comfortable than the front carrier (uh, hello... Acacia is like 25 pounds now). I think Acacia liked it too, with the exception of on the way back down, the way her leg was positioned it fell asleep. Yea, try explaining that to a 18 month old. But all in all it was a great day. :-)
