The Family That Hikes Together...

...Gets wet together. Just kidding, they stay together too.

First of all, a moment of silence please.

Right now, while I am at home hacking phlegm from my lungs and speaking with an almost-man voice, my darling husband and little boy are at church.

Do you know what this means???

I am alone in our house, without a baby. This is probably maybe the 2nd time this has happened since Preston was born. It is very quiet. I almost shutter at how quiet it is, aside from the clicking of keys on the keyboard as I type this of course. I know I should be sleeping, but I feel this urge of excitement that I might actually get a few projects done during this two hour baby-less block of time.

Okay so back to the good stuff.

Despite the fact that I've had a nasty case of phlegm-hacking-itus this past week, I relented and went along with Will's idea to go climb Mt. Si yesterday afternoon.

So let the adventure begin...

Remember this contraption? It was the very first thing Will went out and bought after I told him I was pregnant. Now, almost a year later. He gets to use it.

As you can see, Will was...


It was a tad bit chilly for Preston, so I made sure that:

All snuggled and cinched in...

What do you think of that, Preston?

He is just happy that he is

So then we decided to set the camera on the trunk of the car to take a family photo...

We tried it again later on during the hike. It turned out:


But it is hard to keep hands steady to take pictures without the flash.

Will was wondering if his son would be a...

And a closeup on that little guy in the background:

We think we make cute babies. Maybe we'll have to add more.



Geez not NOW sillies. I just had one. We mean like next year. Way way WAY late next year, or maybe the year after.

So anyway, we finally decided that it was:


It was getting darker, and the little guy just couldn't take it any longer. Good thing the piggyback has:


Back at the car, Preston was...



And thus ends our tale of this particular adventure.

And why I am home sick from church. You really shouldn't go out in the rain and cold if you're already sick.

Preston really is an adorable baby. I think we both lucked out in this department.

What fun. I think Will had more fun then Preston. However Will did most of the work. (Except for dressing him so warm.)

Seriously, that pic of the three of you, and the look on Preston's face, it's too cute. He really is the cutest little guy - I can't wait to meet him in person!!

It looks like a little gnome attached is hanging out in the background.
