Hiking the *Y*

Don't let those *I'm so tired* faces trick you.. these kids practically ran up to the top of the Y and then turned around and ran down without blinking an eye. I don't know how I am ever going to keep up with them.. They are ... KRAZY!!
Max may have whined the most?? I know right?? Our oldest.. our #1.. the star?? Love him.. He may have grabbed my hand once or twice. Made me smile. Alexander seriously has one thing on his mind.. SNOW!! When he saw the *Y*, he kept yelling, "MOM.. MOM.. SNOW.. I see SNOW".. running harder and harder to get there. "Did you know that the *Y* is made out of snow?" It was seriously awesome!Barrett boy started at the bottom of the hill and was at least one switch back ahead of us the whole time.
I asked him.. "Little friend.. do you ever get tired?"
Him, "Yes!"
Me, "What do you tell yourself to keep going. . going.. going?"
Him, "Nothing.. I just go.. I don't tell myself anything.. I just keep on going." Ha ha.. funny kid~Doesn't every little girl hike with flowers in their hair and a beaded necklace around their neck??
She of course didn't let those boys show her up.. ha ha.. love it that she is holding her pants up.. That smile makes my mommy heart smile every time..
Lola is the happiest when she is outside.. So this day was practically heaven for her. She was outside and she had her dad! This girl loves her "Da da" more than anything. It's hard to be the favorite. Just ask Tim. :)
I am so blessed. Best family ever.
