Goin' On A Bear Hunt

Ok, so no, we didn't go looking for bears - or any wildlife for that matter - but we did go on a hike with friends. There's a great place close by called Dixon Lake {where we did our family maternity photo shoot} and there are lots of walking trails. The area is beautiful. There are mountain views all around and when you're on a downhill portion of the walk you're overlooking nothing but an expanse of beauty!

We went out with our friends Angie and James and their two boys, Cael and Coen, to go for a short hike/family walk. I guess short is kind of an understatement. The walk was a total of almost 2 hours and I have no idea what the distance was - it wasn't as much as it seems because we were slowed down by the 2 year old and 3 year old and their slower pace. Eden walked some of it and rode in our carrier or on our shoulders part of the time. I was really proud of her for what she accomplished and without any complaining {for the most part}.

One of the reasons we went today was to hopefully get Baby Boy excited about family outings so he'd come join us. No such luck {yet}! He still doesn't seem interested in coming to meet us right now. He seems pretty happy where he is. Since the walk didn't work - and none of my other walks this week that were about 1.5 miles each worked either - I'm going to go get some rest. He's going to be here within the next 10 days so if I can't exercise him into the world, I'll just make sure I'm well rested for labor!
