Another Land Trust hike!

This time we did the Linekin Preserve/Burley Loop hike. It was a lot more challenging than I thought it was going to be! Oops!
The hardest part though was that Maggie fell asleep shortly after those pictures were taken, and Nick, Dad, and I had to carry her the whole mile back. Poor Nick did the very steep uphill part. She was exhausted though from all the fun we'd been having with Erik, Isabelle, Chester, Craig, Elizabeth, and Jess all weekend. Probably mostly from staying up until 10:30 the night before.
Fishermen's Festival was super fun, as always. Mom and I took the girls to the Miss Shrimp pageant on Friday night, and it was great. Nina is pretty sure she's not going to want to do it when she's 9, but Maggie is game. And she already knows what she wants to do for a talent--twirl a baton! She came up with this before she even knew that 2 of the contestants were doing just that.
On Saturday morning we got downtown in time for the trap hauling contest. It was cold! But that's ok, that meant I got to wear my pretty new jacket. I love it! Trap hauling and crate running were lots of fun too.
Then on Sunday, we did the hike and had lunch at Dunton's. The weekend was too much fun--we didn't want it to end!
