Justin had the crazy idea to take the kids on a hike to snow lake today. I didn't actually think it would happen....we haven't done this hike since one of our first dates and it's not really for the faint of heart, especially with kids strapped to us. But, we got up this morning and maybe the coffee hit just right. We decided to go for it and trucked all 8.5 miles.
Owen hiked quite a bit at the beginning and end, the kids had a blast playing in the lake, they took naps while we were being tortured on the way down, and Owen was super excited to try a "real outhouse." It was really intense physically but the kids did so awesome. So fun to share this love with our kids...and pretty sentimental to get back there too.

We started off the summer via a hike and splash at discovery park, so it seemed fitting to head over there again on labor day to commemorate the unofficial "last" day of summer. The tide was way up this time, and it was a little cold by the water, but we still had a blast.
