Take a Hike

Addison about did both Andy and I in again today.
Age three has been tough.
There have been bad days, good days, and a few more rough ones

Lately she has been thoroughly enjoying doing the EXACT OPPOSITE of whatever we ask her to.
We had wanted to get out and enjoy a GORGEOUS day today and Andy had asked her a few too many times to let him help her get dressed.

After a few minutes of running away, laughing, not listening whatsoever...
Andy pulled out the big one.

"Addison!! If you don't get over here RIGHT're going to get a spanking."

Addison's reply...

"Yes! Ok dad, yeah, I need a spanking. Can you give me a spanking daddy?"
"Give me a spanking!!!"

Really? What do you do then?


After wrestling the clothes on both kids, we headed out for a hike....
because at least they would be contained, we could carry on a conversation, and just enjoy some peace and quiet.

We love this path in Encinitas. It's a short drive from the house and has some beautiful views.
I have to enjoy it while I can still say it....
Our car thermometer said 71 when we parked.
Sorry Texas friends, it's obnoxious, I know.

Graham conked out halfway through.

We had strategically packed a lunch for the kids that they could eat on the hike, so we could rush them off to nap as soon as we got home.

When I looked down, Addison had hooked Graham up with some food as well....even though he was passed out.
She can be very sweet.

I don't really know what this is....
I guess it's a house and they are obviously growing something....
looks like a beautiful winery plunked down in the middle of a neighborhood.
If it was a winery, we most definitely would have stopped in....

The views are amazing on the entire 3 mile loop.

I think I should take Andy "hiking" more often.
It's nice to have someone else do all the grunt work.
