Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

First Hike

The sun beckoned us outdoors today, so we decided to explore a local park the way we did before kids:  on foot.  That meant the first true hike for the girls.  

About ten, we headed to Sunol Regional Park for a walk to Little Yosemite.  Large granite boulders framed by cascading water make this part of the wilderness area lovely during the Spring. Round trip it's about a three-mile hike from the parking lot.  Challenging for a four and almost six year old, but not undoable.   

We packed up some waters, trail mix and sunscreen and headed out.  And I have to be honest, the kids surprised us.  Both trooped along trails, climbed over rocks and slid down a couple of hills like old hiking pros.  The trip wasn't without whining, there was some, but only once we were almost back to the car.   

All in all, it was a great day, and we're hoping to do more hikes as the weather warms up.

P.S.  We have some great pictures, but I'm having issues posting.  I'll post the pictures when I figure it out.
