We went on a fun family hike tonight. Kev wanted to set up some trail cameras to stalk elk, so we all went along. We had a great time. Jacob swore that he'd never been hiking before (Dawn and Carvel, [parents] I know for a fact that can't be true. That would make him a very deprived kid). He thought it was really great. And what's not to like. It was quite exciting. I'll let the pictures tell the story.
|Jacob thought this was really cool and wanted a picture to show his family.|
|And this is where the fun began. We ran into about 1/2 mile's worth of cow diarrhea, and Jacob stepped in some. And because we all have the maturity of 10 year olds, we had to make a really big deal about it (especially Kevin).|
|Eat it!! Eat it I said!!|
|I promise: My only motivation was that I was afraid Kev would try to pick me up and end up dropping me in.|
|So then, he has to pick up a stick, smear it with pooh and give chase. Three kids, running down the side of a rocky mountain. Hmmm - Can you guess where this ends?|
|Yep, you got it. Poor Brinkley.|
|Big, sexy bully. I always did like the bad boys.|
|They made up. All is well.|
"And what did we learn from this?" Kevin asks as we arrive back to the car. "Never run down a mountain. Even if you're being chased by a pooh monster." Thank you Lily. Well said.
