Monday however, it was just too beautiful not to do something outdoors so the kids and I went with Tina, Dominic and Michael and drove into the park to hike the Barker Dam trail. The kids had been asking to go to a trail that had good rock scrambling and this is one of our favorites. It was a little disappointing although not surprising given our lack of precipitation to find no water at the dam but we still enjoyed the trail.
So rare for me to get a good picture of Jake with a genuine smile. Love this one!:
Kids forming a conga line along the trail. They are so silly when the four of them get together:
The kids are monkeys on the rocks. Jumping, climbing, laying out on them. You name it:
We finished off with a picnic lunch at a neighboring campground (Hidden Valley) and then headed home for a short play date with the kids. It just made me even more excited for winter to start giving way to spring so we can go on even more hikes. I can't wait!
