It was the perfect day for a hike. Not too hot, not too cold. The length of the hime was perfect too...about 4 miles round-trip. We have a tendency to pick hikes that are too difficult for the kids and it ends up being torturous, but this time it was just right!
The lake was COLD, and it definitely wasn't HOT outside, but Archer insisted on going in the lake anyway, and John was able to be talked into it by Archer...so these 2 went up to their knees (and then Archer fell and got himself and John wet!).
On our hike back we took a little side trail to a waterfall which the boys thought was pretty cool, even if we had to do a little bit of "off-reading" to get there!
All in all, I think it was a pretty good weekend! The boys love any and all holidays, so any excuse to celebrate is good enough for them...but even better when they get to celebrate their DAD who is pretty amazing!
Now we get to spend this coming weekend in 100+ degree temperatures, which I'm excited about but I don't think anyone else is!
