hiking, pumpkins and apples

On Friday Russ, Josie, Thomas and I went to Amicalola Falls for a fun day of hiking. We stopped at the pumpkin patch to take some pictures....
This is our first attempt at Josie sitting against a pumpkin.
spotter needed...

The hike was great. Thomas had a blast. He is an awesome dog. Large... but awesome.
Half way to the top. The truth is...it looks like I carried Josie....Russ carried her up the 600 steps. He did most of the work. He is awesome and cute!

Josie did great. She fell asleep before the hike was over and went to bed at 7pm once we got home. It was a really fun day. We decided to make it a family tradition.

Russ is leaving for Israel tomorrow for 9 days. I am excited for him to take this trip to the Holy Land. It is a teaching tour with a respected author that has become his friend. Josie and I will be on the go as well.

Don't you just love starting little family traditions?? I get so excited when we find something like that and the kids look forward to it every year. Makes me start getting giddy about Christmas!

I was about to give you mad props for hiking with her the whole time...I guess I'll give them to Russ instead:) And that first pic is HILARIOUS!
