A friend of mine took the boys and I on a great hike in Estes Park today!  If felt so amazing to be outside and hiking!!!  I can't wait till the boys are old enough to do some more bigger hikes!

Views of Longs peak and Meeker from the hike.  There were much closer than this picture makes them appear. 

Ethan insisted on walk for a bit of the hike.... he really just wanted to dig in the dirt. 

the rock formations of Lumpy Ridge were amazing!

"Come on Ethan, come on....Are you sure you don't want back in the back pack?"
"NO Mommy!!!! Me do! A me walk!"
Ah, alas, there is no hurrying a two year old..... or making him do something he does not want to do. 

A very proud Matthew for climbing up the rocks!

this is not a great picture but the wild flowers were still amazing!

"lumpy ridge" up close.  You could see rock climbers scaling it.  

Behind this there were several other rocks and a tunnel between them.... We pretended we were on a dragon hunt... big fun for the boys!

Yeah!  He's back in the back pack and smiling about it!

A parting view at the end of the hike

And to make a great day even better, the boys friend William came over to play.  Batman, Flash and a goofy Ethan all had a lot of fun playing together while the "Mommies" sat on the new sofa. 

I have no idea why but for some reason Ethan wanted to wear these safety goggles and kept them on for over an hour.
