Hiking with Friends & FHE

Hiking with Friends
Last Saturday we went hiking with some friends up in the Sandia Crest area.  I was loving the shade coverage, because most  hikes we do are in the wide open and the sun glares right in your eyes.
Daddy and son tackling the hike with their bare feet.
Graham happily rode in the "pack pack" (as Miles would say) and just giggled in my ear the entire way.
Best buds holding hands.
After hiking about 2 miles Graham began to have a melt down.  He wanted to walk, but his little legs couldn't keep up.

Before singing our regular song, "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree" and briefly discussing anything church related for family home evening, we colored and finger painted these wooden masks.
Tim even got in on the fun.
I think Miles had more fun taking all of the crayons out than he did actually coloring with them.
Overall, I must say it was a successful FHE activity.  Now I just need to make sure Miles doesn't use the wooden masks as weapons.  Anything with a handle these days is some sort of weapon.  The life of a boy! *sigh*
