Hiking with Grandma Jo

My Mom is here visiting so we decided to go for a little hike with her along the Anne U. White trail just outside of Boulder. Of course it decided to rain on us. But we went anyway.
Everything is so green right now, it was beautiful! And a little chilly.

Josie wanted to eat her way down the trail so she found a way to prop her umbrella in her water bottle sling so she had both hands free for her snack.

Sweet, tired Ruthie, who fell asleep on my back by the end of the hike.

Down the trail we go!

By the end of our hike the sun came back out and warmed us up.
Josie found the hugest earthworm I have ever seen! I thought it was a stick, but she saw it and stopped to look at it. Good eyes, Josie!
Fun times with Grandma Jo. We'll miss you in the coming year!

I love all the colorful umbrellas! Grandma Jo, you fit right in;a good cheery choice in umbrellas :)

Katie- it was great to catch up with you a bit yesterday! Let's do that again soon, i know i have been spectacularly bad at communication lately; so i will try to make better habits in that department. Speaking of, i rode to the Fikes for MND last night. It's taken me five years to conquer my fear of Red Dog Rd :)
