Back in the saddle again!





Well since it was an absolutely lovely day and since I plan on returning to work in a week, we decided to indulge in one of my favorite pasttimes--hiking. I turned down Devil's Lake since it involves climbing but we went down to Gov. Dodge state park outside of yes--Dodgeville. It's about a 45 minute drive. Chewie really hasn't been out hiking with us much because of my issues this summer. I mean--a bathroom isn't too readily available in a huge state park. So, now that I don't have to worry about that--we can enjoy the outdoors again. We thought we had worn him out, but towards the end, he was grabbing Ted's hand and would say "c'mon let get them" referring to Julia and Rauan that had run up ahead of us. We also took him to a waterfall area at the park and he was a little fearful but he went down to the pond area with me and checked it out and touched the icy cold water! We had a blast and I know I'm going to sleep really good tonight. I'm yawning right now. I might be in bed before the kids! But I made it! And the sore parts are the legs, not the stomach.

Yay Janiece!!! Good to see you up and around :) Sounds like you had a great outing. Can't say that I love hiking, but I do love to see the kids romping around the park feeding the geese. I LOVE the pictures. Alihan looks so wonderfully happy, it just makes my heart burst. Your kids are all so special. Can't wait to meet you guys this winter :)

LOVE Julia's shirt. When she outgrows it, send it on to the Latham household as I know someone who will probably need it in a few years!!

I still can't get over the blonde hair. Are you sure he's not getting into the Clairol? LOL!!!
