Jump Start
Yesterday was such a fun day! We went to a canyon that's about half an hour from the house and hiked with friends! It was so much fun! We went up and down several ladders...
...took some bad family pictures... I never have looked that great in hats...
...hiked through a "slot canyon" (this shot is from the floor looking at the sky)...
...and eventually made our way back out safe and sound!
After that we swam with some other friends and then barbecued with both families that night.
Today? I'm sore, but I feel great! I had been putting off starting my workout stuff (remember, I'm lazy), but yesterday gave me a pretty good jump. I'm excited to get going today!
How was your Memorial Day weekend?

Thanks for the inspiration!

And I don't do hats either, but I think you look cute!

You guys are so cute! With the hat too! ;-)

Way to go - I'm about to walk to the post office. I've been putting it off for about 3 hours now... and even now, I'm here checking out my friends' blogs. lol!!!

I love slot canyons. We did the Grand Staircase when I was in high school, and I would love to go back.

And gas prices? Yeah. Major lameness.

Way cool canyon - and it looks like the CA state parks haven't taken it over yet... if they had, you wouldn't be able to walk through the canyon, touch anything or heaven forbid, climb a ladder (in case you fell and sued the state or something...) Glad you had fun! My kids would love that place!

I think you all look adorable in your hiking gear. Sounds like a wonderful day for sure. Glad you had fun.

I am not too much of a hiker. My hubby says that i am a first class wuss when it comes to the outdoor-I confess that he is right. Your family looks like they had a great time! Fun memories. You don't look bad in a hat-we are always our worst critics. Also-i emailed you with swap info-go and check and make sure you got it-any questions let me know.
glad that your m day was good. it poured here all day! All day! So-we watched movies. Fun! i know that you are jealous!

We got a free meal at my brother's house. It doesn't get much happier than a totally free meal. And he sent the leftovers home with us too!!!

I don't mind hats but what I really want is to wear a veil in my pictures. :)

Looks like you had such fun. I love hiking.

I could make you feel a whole lot better if I posted a picture of me in a hat--I always look at other people and think they look so cute and get jealous ; (
I think you look great.

I love these pictures! I think you and your family look so cute, and the slot canyon is way cool! Sounds like so much fun! :)

Let's see...We sent Zach off to a six day scout leadership training camp; I worked out too much; I spent four hours highlighting Lauren's hair and giving her a new cut while watching a tearjerker DVD; then for Family Night we went to Prince Caspian, which I really liked, but the film broke TWICE! The good part is that the theater gave us free passes for any movie we want, so we'll go back for Indiana Jones! :)
