Today goes down in the books as a perfect day.
My dad babysat, and Jason and I took a day-trip together. We hiked to the top of Mt. Baldy! It was spectacular!! From the parking area it was 4 miles up going from 6,000 to 10,000 feet in elevation. There is a nice lodge at the top where you can have lunch and just enjoy the views.
Hiking uphill for four miles in the sun without a hat meant that I had to do be creative with my sweater. Jason found this quite funny.
I absolutely loved the fresh blue sky and view of the valley below.
The sky is bluer up here.
There was even a waterfall that I had no idea was up here. I’ve lived in this area all of my life, but have never hiked here! So it was just wonderful to spend a day in my “own backyard” as they say and enjoy the natural beauty of where I live. All of this awesomeness was only a 15 minute car trip away.
Now, this seems unrelated, but is still part of my perfect day. Yesterday I bought the kids (and myself) tennis rackets because I want to start hitting the ball around with them at the park. Our park has a nice tennis court and I saw a dad hitting balls with his little 3 year old about a month ago. I had no idea you could start kids so young! Anyway, now I’ve got it in my head that I want to play tennis with my kids so here we all are posing for a picture this morning before Jason and I left for our hike:
Have a wonderful day!
