Maybe we can hike! And see a waterfall or something! No. The kids were tired from awesome hotel living (stay up late! Wake up early! ELEVATOR JUMP!). Eloise wanted to hike on her own, as in, slide around in the mud and scream when picked up. Beautiful flowers bloomed all over the mountain and I showed off my foraging know-how by harvesting chickweed for everyone to taste (tastes like sweet corn!).
Then Chris found a tick on his leg. So that was the end of hiking. It will be more fun when the kids are older and we’re not wearing shorts and sandals and exposing ourselves to Lyme disease.
