Mountain Mama

On Mother's Day, I requested that we all climb a mountain together, and that is just what we did.  Parkman Mountain, Acadia National Park. 

 Windy day, intermittent sunshine, amazing views, happy kids.
 And happy dog.

On the way up, Skyler said:  "THE VIEW IS AMAZING" and Reed said:  "THIS IS THE GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE"

And during the last quarter mile, Reed said:  "WAAAH."  and Skyler said:  "I FEEL LIKE I'M NEVER GOING TO STOP WALKING."

3 miles up and down a mountain on their little climbing legs:  a pretty big deal.

Relaxing and eating pb & js when we were done:  awesome.

Fun! So jealous that you went hiking in my hometown area :) I can't wait to go hiking there in the summer!

I think I fell asleep on the ride home from Acadia every time I hiked, biked, or kayaked.. and I was 23-25. :)

That is a perfect way to spend the day!

Reed looks like he's ready to do some adventuring in that first pic. :P
