We figured if the 2nd grade could do this hike, so could we. Whew! We forgot to take into account 2 things. Ryan's 20 pound backpack (aka Alexa) and the 45 pound kid I literally dragged up the mountain (aka Brandon.) Yeah yeah. They only look happy here because it's on the way down.
The girls were awesome. No complaining with happy smiley faces. They made it worth it!
True conversation on the way up.
Jake: I am going to die.
Megan: No you aren't. Keep going, you are doing great!
Jake: Can I see your cell phone?
Megan: I left it in the car. Who are you going to call in the middle of the mountain?
Jake: 9-1-1. I need them to rescue me and get me off of this dang hike.
He and Brandon SERIOUSLY hated the hike. But I believe they felt good that the made it to the top.
