The messages shared were wonderful. One of the things I felt inspired to change was this little blog. I decided to make it private and to make it a family journal. My goal is to write at least a once a week update on what the family is up to and then to print a hard copy of this blog every year for our records.
And so, first a little update on one of our family goals for the year. We decided that we would hike all 18 Red Rock trails together before the end of the year. We did two hikes before this pregnancy made me too sick to hike for a few months. These pictures were from the two hikes we went on in January. We got lost on both hikes. My big beef with these trails in Red Rock is that none of them are very well marked and there is no set end point. I hate that. I like a destination to reach. Regardless, we had a good time. The weather was perfect and the area is so beautiful. Our hope is that we will raise our kids to love the outdoors and to be active and healthy. Zach is a good little hiker, and he doesn't whine (too much). Willow enjoys being packed around.
