Loving the outdoors

Life has been fun. We're spending a lot of time in the outdoors. Mason has been reluctant to hike, he's so lazy. He prefers being carried. We're working on him and we'll take a little friend of his with us next time, should encourage him to hike. Erika of course is still hiking with her friends and Camryn almost every weekend. Today she went on a 2 mile hike with 1500 feet elevation gain. So hard, but the view was worth it! She can't wait until Kevin's leg is well enough to go, too.

Camryn at the top of Linda Vista Trail. Note the large pyramid of rocks in the background. This is a cairn that some hikers built to identifiy the end of the trail and acknowledge their success. Thank goodness Camryn's not crawling yet, or it will be more difficult to put her down while hiking.

Today we went to the top of Mt. Lemmon and played in the snow! The men built a snowman while Erika held Camryn and took photos. We did a little sledding with a sled someone lent us. The men had fun, but Mason seemed a little scared. We'll try again next year.

Mason truly was so happy to be up there. And Kevin and Chris haven't had that much fun in a long time.

Camryn seemed fascinated by all of the action. Erika was very happy to have an old pair of snow boots to wear.

This was a short hike to Sabino Canyon Dam that we did last weekend. It was on a paved road and Mason complained half the time. But there was a lot of water, so it was neat.

Girl on the Go!

Camryn is very eager to move around. She's started getting on her hands and knees and "rocking." She can't sit up on her own yet, but we think she's close to crawling.
