What a Beautiful Day!

Happy Veteran's Day, and thank you to everyone who has served or is currently serving!

Yesterday was in the high 60's, low 70's. It was gorgeous! Thankfully we had planned on hiking, so we got to take advantage of the day.

We started our hike with lots of layers

By the end of the hike, we had removed lots of layers!

We really enjoyed the hike. The trail was pretty steep, which we all really enjoyed (flat gets pretty boring for all of us). We hiked just a bit longer this time then last time. (for more hiking pictures, feel free to check out our flicker account)

We also had made plans to meet up with cousins at the children's museum in La Crosse, WI. That was really a blast as well.

Cousin Kelsey, Cousin Logan, Auntie Kris, Emma, Gramma, Jared 
(I was keeping baby Haley company while everyone played)

A really cool vacuum thing with scarves that shoot out from different locations. 
This kept us busy for a while.

I don't remember what these things are called, but it was a giant version of what you can get at the store. Jared's on the top, then me, then Emma. Fun :0)

After the museum we met up with GG's Hagen for super. It was good to get one last visit in before we head for Montana.

Now to backtrack a bit. The movers that came out on Wednesday were all very nice. Four people showed up and it is probably a good thing. We had way more stuff than we thought. The movers arrive a little after 9:00 am and didn't pull out of the driveway until around 3:00 pm. It was a long day for everyone, but I feel that they took great care of our stuff and they were all really nice.

So, Wednesday night we had a lot of big open spaces. It was just calling to Emma to be played in.


Brio's first, then she moved on too mega blocks and fiddlestix. At one point we spread out a towel so she could sprawl out and paint with the little art kit we had put together for our travels.

Lots of fun.

Well, it's a rainy day. Think I might get our laundry done and then either read or work in my altered journals.

Hope your weekend was fantastic!
p.s. At this time next week, Jared, Emma and I will be in Great Falls, Montana!
