April had to work again today so Lorelei, Audrey, Sweet Pea, and I headed off to Arapahoe Pass.  For some reason, when I asked them to pose for a picture for me to text to April, Audrey started throwing up gang signs, while Lorelei decided to go for a Cosmo cover-shot, while making the someone-tooted face.  I may or may not have just eaten a can of baked beans before we took this hike.

Anyway, it was a great hike, and now I'm the sorest I've really ever been.  Lorelei rode the Kelty most of the way up and half of the way down.  I was saying to April that I was never this sore after taking Audrey in the Kelty at 2 years old, and she reminded me that Audrey was in the 5th percentile for weight at that age.   So that explains it.

Both girls definitely showed a marked interest in all the bugs we encountered, which I think is largely due to our 'flies.  Audrey carried this guy around in his flower for the better part of an hour.

And, of course, we made homeschooling hay of the whole event by reading How Mountains are Made tonight for bedtime.
