Another Home Hike

Another overdue post from a couple of months ago. This was the first real hike we did onto the trials together.

Our trail that parallels the road and creek. Evan and I walk this almost every day. 

He loves saying "Goooooo!" and running.

And of course getting a ride when he gets tired.

Ed made a silly face to get our boy to smile :)

It was cold, so I bundled Evan up inside my jacket.

The sun was starting to drop as we walked back home. It's wonderful having nature so close.

Evan's Daycare

I realized I started this post back before the holidays, so sorry that it's a little overdue. But, here is Evan's current daycare! We love the space he has here to run around and explore :). Hard to believe he has less than 2 months left in the 1-2 year old room!

Hiking from Home's been a busy winter. Between holidays, work, and lots of sickness, it's been pretty easy to fall behind. So, even though I'm sick yet again, I'm trying to find some time to update. 

We are finally done with our renovation as of a week ago, and are loving our new home and not having someone else in our house all the time. We still have more to do, but we're taking a break, which feels great.

Part of enjoying our new home is actually getting out onto our backyard trails. Ed took us on his favorite trail yesterday, which is about a 5 minute walk from our house. 

Everything is so green and beautiful right now - this was a prefect hike, made sweeter by being so close. 

Lots of beautiful views to enjoy!

We could even see Spring Lake - Ed takes Evan for runs to there all the time, and it was fun to see how close it actually is. 

Ed and Evan have been doing Father/son hikes together at least every other week - we're hoping to raise a little boy who loves the outdoors as much as we do.

We probably only hiked a couple miles, but it felt like we were a world away. I told Ed that we really have no excuse for not hiking every weekend, especially when we have such a wonderful one from our front door. 

Evan had a great time as always, and enjoying doing the last part of the "hike" up our street. What a beautiful day.
