Hello, I am finally back! Phew.
It has been a very busy last few weeks, but very good. We had a great trip to Arizona and loved seeing all our friends. We also picked up our new puppy! Meet Sunny...
A very cute and smart Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppy. She is only three months old and weighs 30 lbs, yes, she will be BIG!
Speaking of hiking...
When we got back from AZ we had family come into town and we had a great time hanging with them last week. My Brother-in-law wanted to hike Pike's Peak in Colorado Springs, so my husband and I and our two oldest boys went with him... (Gotta love my $1 garage sale sunglasses :)
the Incline, which is basically railroad tie stairs straight up the mountain for .9 miles and 2,000 vertical feet, I have never been so out of breath! The top photo is us at the top of the Incline. Then we hiked the rest of the way to the peak, around 10 miles. It took us just under 6 hours with a 30 minute "oops, we took the wrong trail" mishap. In the bottom left photo above, with my second son and brother-in law you can see the peak we hiked to in the background...yes, it was VERY far away and that was about an hour into the hike already! The bottom middle photo is us at the top, and the bottom right is our "we are dead tired" shot taken in the gift shop on top of Pike's Peak. I was SO proud of my boys they really did an amazing job!
