A Winter Hike

IMG_2450

Last weekend we went for a hike with two of Lucas' sisters and their families up at Sugarloaf Ridge to catch the waterfall in all its gushing post rains glory. It was a sight to behold for sure, and a beautiful day all around.

We hiked a 2 mile loop involving a couple of steep climbs and the kiddos did great! Such a lovely way to close out 2012. Speaking of which, Happy New Year! I hope it's treating you all well, so far. New Years Eve ended up being pretty fun and involved costumes, so I'll probably post a few pics from that.

With the holidays and Clover out of school for the past two weeks, I've been a quiet observer in blogland, but with school starting up again and things getting back to normal, I'm looking forward to making the rounds this week and putting in some time in those comments sections!

Missin' my girls, of course ;)

Hello my dear! I've missed being around here too! So busy being Summery and spending time outdoors. Just when i think there is no place more beautiful than where i live, I see these pics of beautiful California. We went on a little hike past a small waterfall to a bit Dam-caused waterfall today - but we were bare armed and legged, and hatless. Opposites to you. Look forward to reading more xo
ps i haven't forgotten my promise to send you a bag.

Hey You! Turkey tails!!! Did you take any home? Looks like a lovely walk and good on the kiddos for keeping up. More hikes for you, if Clover can keep up.

the waterfall looks like up here in the northwest, but the manzanita and oaks are definitely northern california. very beautiful, indeed!

happy 2013!
