We had a really fun time on our big hike this past weekend! We went to a place called Eagle Creek up in the Gorge. It was really pretty. It was a hike that kids could not come because you walked next to a cliff the whole time that dropped hundreds of feet into the water. Noah would have died for sure! There was even a cable on the side to hold onto so you didn't die! (Actually, the cable was pretty ridiculous. You just had to be kinda careful!) We went with two other couples that also have baby boys that are Joshua's age. All the hippies on the trail (you know--hard core hikers with their hiking poles, short shorts and smell like they hadn't showered in weeks) were so amazed that babies were there. It was pretty funny. Our plan was to hike 6 miles in to a water fall. We only made it 5 because we had to make sure and get home to relieve our babysitter. That and those boys sure liked to stop and eat a lot! Joshua was in Heaven. He ate like 10 times that day! It was a really pretty hike. There were lots of great places to sit and feed the babies and rest. And of course we found a couple of banana slugs. I even talked one of the guys into licking it--and convinced everyone else that I am crazy! I almost died when we got finished. I was pretty sore. Poor Aaron carried Josh 9.75 miles. I think I carried him only a quarter of a mile. What a wimp! Josh was sure a trooper. He was such a good baby and even had a few naps! Anyways, I think Aaron enjoyed his birthday hike. It was a great day!!

Just saw the hair cut post. I did that once when I decided to save money and do it myself. I ended up shaving the whole thing.

I almost did--but I'm just not quite sure Aaron could pull off the bald look!

Yep, Thanks Sari it was fun. About the uber-hikers, not only were they surprised to see babies up there but you could see the how-did-they-get-thoes_babies-up-here-without-hiking-poles-and-short-shorts look on their faces. It was quite humorous.
