A hike to feel big

The big boys got to go camping. The littles had to stay behind. Nothing like being left with mom while your brothers and dad and uncle and grandpa drive away on a camping trip to make a boy feel small. Fortunately, I can still wave my motherly sway and turn their little broken hearts around with a simple hike in the forest.
Ready for the hike

Up the hill

classic classic Ollie

Forget the carrier...she walked the whole time. 



little girl in the big woods


beautiful foliage all over the place. Stay on the trail boys!


Totally fake

New animals. Sorry Josh. To top it off, Noah named his animal an obnoxious sound



First and only fight of the hike. Pretty good I'd say.



They felt big. As for me, I always feel just a little big smaller after a walk in the woods.

Such a good Mommy....a walk in the woods to cheer up the little ones, on three hours of sleep!!! Hope you all sleep soundly tonight. LOVE the pictures.

I agree with your Mom, Jodi...you are such a good mommy! It looks like you had a great time with them (despite the crazy lack of sleep), and you made some beautiful memories :)
