Our Fifth Anniversary

last weekend brad and i celebrated our fifth anniversary! holy smokes, i can't believe it's been five years. that just seems like a big milestone and i'm so so happy we have lots and lots and lots more years to come. we didn't do a big anniversary celebration because we're taking a trip to NYC in a couple weeks and we're kind of treating that as our anniversary. but we took the kids hiking and after bedtime shared a bottle of champagne and some ice cream and were in bed by 11pm.

i took way too many pictures from our hiking trip and it took all of my power not to post them all! we had a lot of fun even though it was disgustingly hot and humid. thankfully the trees shaded most of the paths and we were pretty much safe. 

we love taking these little family hikes together. we did it a lot when we lived in california and now that theodore is a little bigger, we've been getting out more here too. it's so fun to watch william and charlotte explore and discover new things. charlotte is such a daredevil, it's a little stressful when she wants to climb some big rocks or down a cliff (!!!!), but she's also very sure and steady and can pretty much do anything her big brother can do. she certainly keeps me on my toes!
