The plan was that on Father's Day we were going to go on this beautiful hike on a 3.2 mile section of the Superior Hiking Trail. However, because we have kids, things did not go as planned (plus the weather was crummy). So, needless to say, we didn't get our hike in.
So, since Nathan and I are both off this summer, we woke up one morning and decided that today was the day we were going to attempt our hike. It ended up going quite smoothly and was beautiful. It was a bit of an adventure due to the bear and deer tracks we saw. Plus, moments after going under a railroad track, a small train came overhead and was fun to see. It was wonderful taking advantage of such a beautiful day in nature. We love the fact that there are so many parks and trails in the middle of the city.
The boys seemed to have fun too, and didn't have to work too hard on the hike! :)

We've spent the week up at Lake Winnie with Nathan's family. It's been quite rainy and windy throughout the week, which has caused many card games, reading and relaxing; a nice way to spend a vacation. However, sunshine is always nice, too! Yesterday, the sun finally came out at 4 PM and we spent the rest of the afternoon/evening outside. So, we finally got to go on "Papa's boat" that Isaiah was so excited about. Here are some pics from our week together.
Simon is already 6 weeks old! He is weighing in at almost 11 lbs; clearly he's growing quite well!! He's just starting to give us "real" smiles, which just melt our heart! Isaiah continues to give lots of (s)mooches and hugs and now enjoys saying "Little Broder (brother)". Quite sweet.
So, every kid has their quirks, right? Isaiah's quirk happens to be that he loves his bike helmet! Pretty funny as he requests to wear his helmet around the house, while eating and while taking a nap (ouch, my neck hurts just thinking about it!). No wonder kids make us laugh so much!!
Here Isaiah is riding his bike that his Aunts Stacey and Linda gave him for his birthday. It's this neat bike that doesn't have pedals; it's supposed to help kids with their balance so they can skip training wheels. Isaiah loves it!
P.S. How could we have forgotten his helmet!?
