What do overly ambitious moms do when their kids are off school for fall recess?
We hit the trail.
On Friday morning my sister-in-laws and I decided to take our offspring on a jaunt through the colorful woods for a dip in the hot spring pools. It seemed like a good idea...we had a great time on the same hike last year (except for the little snake incident).
However, this year there were a few kinks. We didn't realize how much of a help the men really were last year. When you are carrying a backpack with lunch and drinks for 5, plus swimsuits and towels, as well as a small child who is too tired to walk anymore, fun is no longer part of the equation. It was a long hike up to the pools (UP being the key word) .
Not exactly one of our finer moments, but it was a beautiful day! :)
Note to Self: As much as you love the fall foliage, next year consider the pumpkin patch.
