Moss Rock Preserve

Today was BEAUTIFUL!! So we went for a short leisurely hike at Moss Rock Preserve. Is that graffiti? UGGH!

Well it wasn't short or leisurely! We had never hiked there before so we ended up there for about 3 hours. I don't know what that translates to mile-wise on terrain like this. I love those dangling legs!

Ella LOVES being outside. It's so awesome to watch her! She is discovering things for the first time and I love being there to see it!
We stopped to refuel on PB&J!
Hey Jason, turn her around so I can get a picture of her face.
Oh well.
Looking at a leaf during Mommy's turn with the pack. The pack only weighs about 5 lbs. - Ella weighs 21ish. Wooo!
There she is!
And......she's had enough.
Is that MY child sucking her thumb? Yucky! There is no telling where those hands have been today. Hopefully not in any poison oak! I didn't want her to drop her Binky in the woods. Look at me, I'm breaking a sweat, while she's loungin'!
Hooray! We are at my Nonnie's house! I'm free! I can walk!! After 3 hours in a pack, she needed to stretch those legs!


  1. Oh, I've always wanted to go there. Looks like you guys had a great time. I love that picture where she's asleep on your back... so sweet. I wish we had a baby carrier. Do you think the trails too bumpy for a jogging stroller?


  2. First of all, the outfit is precious and you did a great job on it. The only sewing I can do is a button - but I am working on changing that soon!

    We take our kids hiking there when we come back home. They love it. We normally go with my brother and he always makes it such an adventure for them. Then again he has always made EVERYTHING an adventure!
