Labor Day Fun and Fellowship!

Yesterday we spent a gorgous day in chilly Glacier Park.  We spent the morning with another family, so we had a total of four adults and 13 kids! No need to worry about bears with this crew.  ;0)  We had a wonderful time hiking and in fellowship.  Later in the afternoon we met up with a couple more families and had over 20 kids…there was a lot of activity too say the least!  The weather was nicely cool and very fall like, perfect for hiking.  Here are a couple of pictures from the day…

Nice leg warmers, huh?

Poor Zayne he had a terrible diaper blow out and of course in the rush to get out of the house in the morning I forgot to pack him some extra clothes, luckily I had an extra pair of socks that worked as great little leg warmers and he also had his snow suit to keep him warm on the hike.

After a long day of hiking and hanging out with friends we headed home where Mark cooked a wonderful steak dinner for my birthday.   This morning when I woke up I definitely felt a year older, and a bit stiff and sore!  The kids even made a happy birthday banner for me and made the cutest little cards today. (This is definitely the most wonderful thing about being a mom!)  Hayden must have made me about 20 bracelets out of paper and stickers or out of sparkly ribbon and jewels he borrowed from his sisters-they’re too sweet and I have quite the collection now!

Thanks to the Miller family for such a wonderful day and to the Dunham’s for braving the wild west and taking the kids on a great hike! ( That’s all they’ve talked about today.)  Thanks for the wonderful fellowship too as Mark and I both enjoyed spending the day with your families.  More pictures later!
