Me and the girls? We like to hike. Sometimes we bring along the boys.
This afternoon we decided to go on an adventure and explore the Washington and Old Dominion bike trail which runs through Vienna, Virginia. Unfortunately, all of our bikes (along with most of our belongings) are still in storage back in Arizona. Yeah, it's a long story. Anyhoos, let me just say, we cannot WAIT to get our bikes and explore it the way God intended, because the little bit we saw while on foot was sure beautiful. There were DEER, I say! And purty FLOWERS!
Oooooh, we even did some impromptu teambuilding exercises in the form of helping each other cross a babbling creek bed over a sufficiently sturdy fallen tree trunk. WAY reminiscent of Dirty Dancing, y'all. WAY. But, you know, without the dancing. Um, and no Patrick Swayze. Just children shrieking hysterically and TGIM yelling, "Don't look down! DON'T LOOK DOWN!!" But still, I was thinking about Patrick Swayze the whole time. And humming "Hey! Baby!" by Bruce Channel. Good times.
Well, I suppose I will let the pictures talk for themselves. (There are actually about 12 more pictures, but dangit, I am fresh out of bandwidth for the month on my Flickr account. I'll add more pictures and update the set next month. *heavy sigh*)
Click here for the slide show. You know the drill. Enjoy.

You have the girliest girls. BOTH wore dresses to hike? Unbelievable.
Glad you had a fun day! I so miss the green.

I never said "don't look down." What I said was "hurry up you little wussies."

I kept saying, "Oh, my goodness," as I looked at those pix. That translates roughly into "are these the cutest kids you've ever seen or WHAT?" Delightful post and pix, Cat.

Your kids are beautiful - I love that you can see glimmers of mischievousness (sp?) behind their eyes. They're up to something. I don't know what, but they're up to something! Looks like so much fun!

Is that you? That can't be you! You look too young and hip to be a mama!
By the way, I'm loving the girls. Makes me wanna go bake them some cookies or something.

Yep, my kiddos are quite the goofballs, let me tell you. And that mischievous glint behind the eyes? Oh yes, that is OH SO real... :)
It's funny, I'm so used to my girls insisting on skirts (which I DETEST for myself, BTW. The hell?), that I didn't even think twice about them hiking in them until mrtl pointed it out. Truthfully? I was just happy to get them in tennies over their flowery, foofy sandals and knit tights!
Young? Hip? Surely you jest! My children are laughing hysterically at you. I am definitely the desperate working momma. Did you note the freakishly white legs? I took one look at those bad boys and began researching Mystic Tans, let me assure you. GOSH!

What a great picture! I'm sure you all had a really great time.
As for the white legs, like I tell my "people" who comment on mine, "Well, you gotta start somewhere."
