Nature Hike

Over the weekend we decided to get out and get some hiking in while the weather is still nice. I am so grateful for our time here in the Pacific Northwest, because never have I lived somewhere where you can take a walk through the mountains and come out at the ocean!

I am really not much of a photographer, so this picture doesn't do justice. I will say though, that I cannot wait for the fall!

Very rarely do we have any kind of agenda when we're out communing with nature, but today we were actively looking for walking sticks. This one was, "perfect Bubby-doo size".

We talked a lot about sounds today. Bubs was a little confused by the different bird sounds, but he was so excited to pick up on the sound of a stream, and be able to actually see how it was being made. After this,  he told everyone we passed!

"The tunnel' is absolutely Bubs' favorite part of the day, we use it to motivate him to walk the whole mile and a half down. It doesn't hurt that we almost always see a train! :)

And THIS is my  motivation to be patient: The view just on the other side of the tunnel.
