President's Day Hike

We drove more than we hiked,
but its all good.
The boys were just excited to use their new backpacks.
I'm glad they are excited to carry their own water and snacks.
We weren't anticipating all the snow and ice on the trail
and it held us up a bit.
It was so nerve racking watching the boys make their way
on very narrow sections of trail.
I was so afraid they would slip in the snow and plummet off the edge.
We did a lot of hand holding and grabbing
until my heart couldn't take it anymore and we turned back.
I do think we'll go back to this place again
when it is warmer out
so we can finish the whole hike.
