Dallin has heard us talk a lot about our hiking plans for our vacation in September, so he has been begging to go on a hike now.  So we looked up a place not too far away and went on a hike!


The park is the Julington-Durbin Creek Preserve.  I’ll have to admit, the beginnings of the trail were a bit of a disappointment.  It just looked like a pine tree farm.

But after we got down the trail a half mile or so, we started getting into the natural area of the preserve and it was beautiful.


We made it down to Durbin creek and took a little look.


And talked and looked at some of the plants.


Then we found a little shady spot on the trail and ate a picnic lunch.


The hike was about 1 mile to the creek and then 1 mile back.  They all did really good.  But about halfway back, Layton got kind of tired so he took a ride on Daddy’s shoulders.


I think he liked it :)

Nathan looks so serious in the picture of him squatting...almost looks like he's making his poop face in the outdoor poop position. Looks like a great time and LOVE Layton's smile on Daddy's shoulders.
