hiking

The weather was so absolutely fantastic this weekend! It had me dreaming of spring.
We went on a hike as a family - our first as a family of four, all together.
Ergo to the rescue! (Although hubby would have preferred a frame pack, I think. Our *cheap* frame pack hurts my back and I've found the Ergo great, but hubby felt it was a little small over top of his fleece jacket).
Lynn was sporting her new hydration pack on her back; she was excited to get to use her Christmas gift.

I was happy with the way this shot turned out - the sun shining in through the bare trees on my daughter who had wandered ahead of us on the trail... so very ethereal. I'm linking it up with Darcy's Sweet Shot Tuesday.

Wonderful photos! I love family hikes. It's our favorite thing to do on vacations since there aren't a lot of good hiking areas around where we live.
