Twins mean two ... right?

We got a text from Joe's little brother on Sunday night asking if we want to get together on Monday. OF COURSE! We run on Monday nights so I was trying to think of something that we could do that was physically active. We decided to hike up to Twin Lake Reservoir. The description of it said EASY ... I beg to differ. It wasn't long, but it was 100% uphill (at least until we turned around and went back -- the rest was downhill. So technically it was 50% uphill.) I was huffing and puffing the whole way up. I am out of shape -- but it was tough.

When we got to the top of the hill we didn't think that we went up the right path. First of all it WASN'T easy. Second -- the hike was to a place called Twin Lake. We got to the top and there was this huge dam. We were expecting two of something so we figured that we had taken the wrong path. The sight was gorgeous and totally fun to get to the top. The only downfall was that it was pretty cold.

The more we go and exercise outside -- the more Jace expects it and enjoys it. There were a couple of nights last week that we didn't go out ... and Jace was cranky the whole night. He stayed up late and was pretty fussy. He loves to be outside and he loves to look around. Something about the air, the smells, the outdoors. We are training him well.

Oh and don't forget to check out his hat. It is way too big -- but kept the mosquitoes off! Besides Spiderman is our favorite ... and his.
