Hiking and My Deacon

I am posting this from my tablet, so...please excuse any weirdness.  It auto corrects when it is not supposed to and puts pictures where it wants to...haha. But, I can at least update my blog with pictures I took with my phone.

Joseph starts going to Young Men activities tomorrow. They are concentrating on healthy living and fitness right now. We decided that our family is very out of shape, so to go along with Joseph's YM theme, we started our own health and fitness week. (and we can count it as P.E. for school) Day one activity...we hiked along a piece of the Olympic Discovery Trail. Here are a few pictures...

This is actually where we stopped for snack and turned around. I love where we live. We start out hiking in the forest and ended up looking at ocean water after walking just 45 minutes.

They each packed their back packs with food, water, and a first aid kit. Even Little Miss.

Connor brought a notebook and tried to take notes of what he saw, but got tired of that after about 5 minutes. haha
Yes...Spencer is wearing a white shirt and tie. He does It's because a character in one of his favorite book series does, I think. And he likes looking nice. His OCD has gotten more prominent lately. Perfection is something that he MUST have. He hates the word "the" because it's too vague. Can make for interesting days. But, he was a very well dressed hiker today. (o:
In other news....check out my 12 year old! I can't believe he is that old!  Sunday, the Young Men came and took Joseph out of Primary. It was so touching. He's so excited to go to his first activity night. He will receive the Priesthood this Sunday. It's so exciting! (but..I feel so old!)
