Guh, I should have gone for a run much earlier than 9:15 at Green Lake. Stupid convictions.

Hiking with the Kiddos on Flickr.Another great picture that Amanda took of me hiking with Nikki and Chloe.
Here I have Chloe in my arms because it was just a little over the halfway point of a 6 mile hike and she was getting tired.

Carry On on Flickr.And finally (for now), a picture that Amanda snapped of me, which has also got to be one of my favorites.
I decided to carry Nikki for a bit since I had given Chloe a ride during our almost six-mile hike. I didn’t want Nikki to feel left out. While I was doing that, Amanda had my camera and snapped off this amazing shot.

Another fun panorama I took, on the last night of camping.

Amanda and I were trying to decide when to start a fire when the rain started to pick up. And then we realized that we had no way to really cover ourselves from the rain, so we makeshifted a canopy using our tarp and some sticks we found around the campsite.

Keep in mind, we haven’t camped in over three years, so we were pretty proud of our little accomplishment.

It was also a good reminder of things we need to remember the next time we go camping.
