Let’s be adventurers

Justin has been back and forth to Dallas for work quite frequently for a little while now and last week I got to join him. I had a nice, relaxing week while he worked, and we got to hang out in the evenings; his parents stayed with the kids. We have been trying to find free things to do with the kids, so when we got back home, Justin decided we would take them on a hike that he has been wanting to do.  It was a relatively easy hike; 3 miles if you do the whole thing. Not sure exactly how far we hiked, but probably around 2 miles.


We got the kids REI hiking backpacks and hydration reservoirs for Christmas and they have loved using them so far. They packed their lunches in them and any other essentials they thought they might need. Jocelyn was glad she had her tissues and bandaids!


Coronado Heights has a need little fort looking structure and it made you feel like you were  in Europe! The kids loved exploring it.


After we explored and ate lunch, we started our hike.

Jackson was in charge of carrying Julianna’s diapers and wipes and he was so proud of it!


And Jonah decided he needed to lead the pack. He made sure to let anyone who got in front of him know that he was the leader!


And he also let us know when it was time for a water break.

King of the mountain!


Another King of the mountain!


“Mom, take a picture of me sleeping on this rock!”


“Me too, Mom!”


The kids did awesome and no one complained too much about walking and climbing.  Does anyone have any other KS trails they love to hike? We are looking to have another adventure soon 🙂
