A Sun Filled Weekend


This entire weekend was filled with perfect temperatures in the mid-60’s with limited humidity, a light breeze and nothing but sunshine.  Saturday was beautiful so we decided to head to Great Falls, VA and take Jackson on his first hiking trip.  We bought the Kid’s Deuter hiking backpack off Craigslist months ago when Jax was an itty bitty newborn because we knew it’d come in handy and be a worthy investment for our family with our love for hiking and the beautiful trails in this area.  We finally had a perfect day to take it on a test hike and Jack is finally big enough to use it.

Verdict? He loves hiking.

He got a kick out of being so high up and being able to see so much around him.

He was especially mesmerized by the falls themselves.

We hiked for about an hour and a half, exploring our favorite “River Trail”

We all had a great time and can’t wait to get out and explore some more.  By the end our little bear was tuckered out.

Sunday was another gorgeous day with lots of sunshine.  We had our last training run before our big race next weekend (5 days to go to my first 13.1!!!).  We busted out 8 miles that flew by and made me feel ready to take on the Rock N Roll DC Half Marathon Saturday (sadly my knees need major icing before then and my hips need some TLC and yoga). 

Hope y’all had a wonderful weekend! Ours flew by way too fast.
