Little Hikers

In recent years, we have put our hiking shoes on somewhat of a back burner.  We have the Kelty and all, and have gone on a few mini hikes here and there but nothing like before we had children. When we were driving up to the Tree House Camp, we saw a sign for a waterfall and we both knew that before we drove home, we would have to see it. So, once we were on our way home we stopped. We learned it was a 1 mile hike and thought we'd give it a try with the girls.  Jade was mostly on Daddy's shoulders but she did walk a good portion of it.  Hazel was stoked when she picked the most perfect walking stick! We hiked .5 miles to the waterfall, relaxed...put our feet in the stream, drank water, snapped photos, and then headed back to our car which was another .5 miles away.  Our very first family hike was successful!! Little do the girls know that we have many planned for this summer!!!!! 

“Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from the heart of anyone who believes in me.’”


John 7:38
