This is what I wore to church today (it was so WINDY!). I LOVE getting dressed up for church. Is that strange? Probably, but I figure if I am going to wear a dress, I might as well go all out.
On Saturday we went on a hike. It is a hike that we do every year. It is up at a ski resort and leads to a perfect little lake. The air smells clean and heavily of pine and the terrain isn't too steep for kids. We always take a breakfast of bagels and cream cheese and nectarines (the tradition started when Josh and I were dating and that is what we took, so we just always do that...I guess we are sort of sentimental) We usually go a bit later in the summer, but decided that Saturday was as good a day as any.
Well, to make a long story short the "trail" was super steep and seriously hard. I was SO proud of my boys. They are only 8, 7 and 6 (the 2 year old was in a hiking backpack) and they didn't complain. They just kept saying "This is hard, but Nelsons can do hard things." I was seriously impressed with them.
