ensign peak

on saturday, we went on a little family outing and we ended up at Ensign Peak. neither peter nor i had ever hiked ensign peak before, so we decided to give it a try. with william in his stroller. at the beginning, it was no big deal. a nice little monument with a paved path.

things changed rather quickly. the paved path turned to dirt, rocks, and make-shift steps made of wood logs. still no big deal for someone walking. (or should i say someone over the age of 1, or anyone that has more than just one month's experience with walking.) but with such an amateur walker, peter insisted that we continue to push will in his stroller. i told peter that if he wanted to take the stroller, he could push the stroller. so he did. and it was pretty funny. and it took us a really long time to hike 1/2 mile.

we finally made it to the top. and we had a pretty fun time. the view was awesome and will got to stretch his legs. i just kept worrying that he was going to try and run down the face of the mountain. oh, and he kept trying to run up to a couple that was trying to enjoy a romantic afternoon together. sorry guys.



all in all a fun afternoon! and on the way home, we stopped for a treat at jamba juice. don't worry, will did in fact succeed in spilling his entire cup full of acai super anti-oxidant jamba all over his carseat. awesome. i know we were asking for it by letting him hold his cup, but it made him so happy and he looked so cute. now (even though i did my best to clean it out) i have nightmares that every time i put him in his seat he'll get a stained purple bum . . .

Hahaha! That's awesome. We've had some fun stroller pushing adventures too. Fun hike you guys. Will does look cute drinking the Jamba Juice.

That picture of Will drinking is so funny. Simon likes it too.

What a fun outing. The view is spectacular isn't it? Will is such a big boy holding his own Jamba Juice. Peter is a muscle man pushing the stroller.
