A hiking we will go

Nanny Simmonds came for a visit  all the way from New Brunswick this past week. It’s been almost a year since she had seen Lincoln – the last time was when we went back to the Maritimes in September – and boy has Lincoln changed. I think he must have remembered her because there were no shyness issues and he thought his new playmate was just great. I had to work so there was a lot of Lincoln & Nanny time, which they both loved! Andrew was even able to get some more projects done around the house.

On one of my days off we decided to take a hike up Midway Mountain to check out the view.

This was the first time that Lincoln has been in the backpack since the winter.

Yea! A tag for me to play with!

It was the Fourth of July so Lincoln wore his American Flag leg warmers.

Away we go.

Glenn was super excited to hike the trails. He has so much energy that he actually ends up doing double the distance. He is always coming back to check on us.

Daddy signing our names in the log book.

Last summer the trails were upgraded and there were lots of benches along the way to catch our breath and enjoy the scenery.

Glenn was a bit tuckered out when he made it to the top.

Dog kiss anyone?

We took Lincoln out of the backpack so Dad could cool down. He instantly started throwing rocks over the edge.

Throwing rocks is fun!

This is the view of Midway from where we were.

Where we live.

And this is zoomed in on our house!

Going back down was much easier but it was easiest of all for Lincoln!

Thanks for the lift Dad!

The start of something

It’s official. I’m starting a blog. What better way for friends and family, both near and far, to stay connected and up-to-date with the one and only W. Lincoln Simmonds. Lincoln is growing fast and I find it hard to keep up on the email updates, and not everyone (mainly Nanny & Poppy Hicks and Nanny & Grampy Simmonds) is on Facebook – I know, I know, kind of hard to believe, eh? So a blog seemed like a great tool to utilize to my advantage. I’m not making any promises of daily updates but I will post frequently to let you know what our little man is up to. Pictures will be posted, videos will be uploaded and stories will be shared. Let’s begin…

Linc does America

Lincoln took his first trip across the line to Oroville, WA last week. For those of you who don’t know, Midway, BC is a border town and that means we have a border crossing literally 5 minutes from our house. There isn’t much directly on the other side but a short drive will bring you to some decent grocery shopping and a great selection of kid clothes (Carhart, Wrangler, etc.) There was a lot to choose from but we settled on a Carhart hoodie and a sweet cowboy hat for Lincoln to wear this summer. Linc had fun riding around in the shopping cart and even had his first taste of Mexican food – his dad can’t wait until Linc can start eating hot sauce. Did I mention our grocery purchase consisted of 6 new bottles of the hot stuff?

Although Lincoln doesn’t require a passport yet, I think it’s time to take his first passport photo – let’s just hope we can stop him from smiling long enough for them to snap the picture.
