happy birthday baby girl!

Eleanor turns 2! Eleanor and I spent the whole day together yesterday for her birthday. We had so much fun. We went out for bagels for breakfast, went swimming, shopping, got balloons, ate cake, and opened presents. Loved spending time one on one with my baby girl! She had a fabulous birthday! Can't wait to see what the next year brings!

coyote ridge hike

Our hike at coyote ridge. We saw a ton of prairie dogs along the way. We also only did a partial hike, as the kids were very heavy to push up the trail. I found out about this place by looking up good hikes for kids. I would say that this hike was not good for my children's age group. They are 1 and 3 and it was definitely not meant for them. I think I was terrified when I saw the sign rattlesnakes in area beware. I really wanted to try something new though. I was terrified for some reason that we were gonna be attacked by the prairie dogs. I wanted a nature hike and that was definitely what we got. After we were done, we enjoyed lunch before packing up and heading home. I would have enjoyed it more had my husband come with us, or just gotten over being so chicken about the prairie dogs and the possibility of seeing a rattlesnake.
