Our hike in Boulder

Last night we decided to go on an evening hike in Boulder. It's a nice time to go because it's so hot during the day and it was beautiful last night here. The girls loved hiking around and Ben loved the ride!

Here are the girls getting ready to start. They were seriously excited about this. You can tell~ they even hugged for the picture.

Nothing special. Just stopped for a picture on the bridge.

I was so proud of the girls for climbing up this to take a picture. It was Abigail's idea and I didn't think Collette would be on board at all....but she was. Scared as all get out, but she did it!

Right before we left we went down by the water so they could throw rocks in. They had been asking to do that the whole hike. Funny how throwing rocks is so entertaining for kids.
On our way out of Boulder Creek Canyon we saw these deer just hanging out on the side of the road. The kids thought it was cool for like 10 seconds. I was sure we were going to witness the beginnings of a dead rotting deer carcass but they seemed comfortable with the cars whizzing all around them. Good for them. And for us.


  1. I loved walking at night in Boulder. Every Sunday we did and then let the kids throw rocks in the creek. That was the highlight. Also, playing Billy Goats Gruff on any bridge we came across. I miss it.

  2. Isn't it funny how throwing rocks or fighting with sticks will make any trip a success. Thank goodness for nature.

  3. It looks so pretty! I love hikes. It is too hot to go even in the evening now. Your girls are so beautiful.
