a new love for hiking!

Whew, I am making good on my resolutions for the new year already!! I have been getting Andrew outside, and I have been getting my butt in gear for that "slammin' bod"!!! Hiking is our new favorite thing... my sister, Andrew and I have been enjoying local hikes and it is seriously amazing. Why did I balk at this idea before??? There is something about hiking to the very top of a hill and then looking out over the view, realizing that your own two feet took you up there. And to get Andrew outside, hiking and getting healthy with us, makes me oh-so proud. Although when he gets tired, he gets a piggy-back ride... I wish someone would carry me around too hehe!! I love this photo that my sister took of Andrew and I a few days ago and I adore the view behind us. Even though we are minutes from a busy town, it feels like we are the only ones up there hiking. The views are fantastic, it is great to be able to walk and chat with my sister and little bug, and it makes me feel so strong to finish a good hike.


Next up on the adventures of Holly? Camping!!! My sister and I have an unusual urge to go camping lately.... anyone have any handy tips to a girl who has been strictly a hotel vacationer up to this point????? ;)

I love that pic of you guys too! It's so cute! What a great time!! I am on the mission to get in shape too. So far I have done great! I have made lemon bars and rice krispie treats today, and ate almost half a bag of carmel kisses the other day. My eliptical trainer sits downstairs in the garage again. My sister gave it to me two months ago. I suck!

Camping is sooooo much fun...my kiddos love it! We start em' young, hehe. My middle one was under a year old on her first trip and we just took the porta crib and set it up in the big tent, hehe. Love that you all are out and Hiking, what great exercise and time spent together. We camp sometimes when we go to the beach but don't recommend doing that when it's too hot. But camping in itself for a short vacation would be fun. Let us know how it goes. I guess you guys have decent weather on the West coast...I couldn't imagine camping now with how cold it is here in Virginia :-) Soon enough though!
