9.14.15 Family Day | Girl Time Hiking the L

kids photography

Last week I mentioned to Mia that I had never hiked the “L”. She told me she hadn’t either. So of course we had to do it on the next family day.  Some photos taken with Nikon D7100 some with iPhone 6.

a-13a-16a-17a-20a-22a-26Mia: Can I bring both sticks?
Me: Sure. But you have to carry them if you want them.
Mia: OKAY!
So she carried two sticks that were bigger than her half up and one of them made it all the way back down the mountain. We had to get creative in the way she carried them but she did it.

a-29I was given approximately 10 heart attacks as she was climbing around the “L”. Skidding, slipping, walking, crawling… “COME ON NICHOLE!” I didn’t feel comfortable walking on it.
