A hiking we will go....a hiking we will go...... know the rest of the song. We actually already went hiking - last weekend. Tim loves to hike and he's had his head so buried in engineering books studying for his exam that he's not had much time for that type of thing lately. So...we figured we'd take advantage of the cooler temperatures we've been having lately and on Saturday of last weekend we decided we'd go for a hike.Unfortunately our favorite hiking spot is Raven's Run Nature Sanctuary and their fall/winter hours are ridiculous so by the time we were ready to depart we weren't going to make it in time to get a hike in. They close at 4:30 - I mean, seriously? Thats craziness! Tim did some googling and found a trail system at Asbury that neither of us had done so we decided to try it. It was soooooo pretty. We'll definitely go back. For those of you who are local it's super close to their Adventure Course thing they have out there. Anywho - I snapped some cute pictures and although my baby got a blister on her pinky toe which she kept calling her "piggy" she seemed to really enjoy herself too.

The trail wrapped all around the palisades along the KY River - so pretty!
 When we realized we could get down to the river it was on because there is nothing this girl loves more than throwing rocks in the water. Endless entertainment - seriously.
 I'm fairly certain Tim still enjoys it about as much as she does. =)
 Now I call that a wind up!
 Oh the action shots - love em'.
 Happy as can be!
After we finished hiking we drove a bit further down the road to the equine center so she could see some horses. They were all gnawing on the salt block and this horse in particular was trying his hardest to bite of half of the block - so funny.

Our next outdoor family adventure will hopefully be camping. She's been wanting to go for a while because they did a little learning segment on it in school and she's never stopped talking about it. Once the weather is a tad bit cooler more consistently we'll make our plans to do that hopefully. This experience just made me more confident that she's ready for that kind of thing. 


  1. What a great day you had! We really should do more hiking around here. We have beautiful trails not too far from us and the colors are starting to change beautifully. Maybe I'll take your lead, Lindsy and get hubby to go hike with me this weekend!

    Adorable pictures... I particularly love the "Sploosh" one after the big wind up ;-)

    Hugs :-)

  2. Looks like you all had a great time! So pretty! Awww, I remember the hours I spent at that equine center during school! Fun!
