Going on a nature hike........

This morning, me, the kids, my mutha, and my brutha, all piled into my car and drove to a little known trail in our town that leads to an amazing new American Art Museum, Crystal Bridges.
Enough a that, onto the hike. Yes, the hike. Well, we started our adventure at 10:30. We had all our people, two strollers (thank the Lord I was pushing one or I woulda fallen right out onto the trail), two bottles of water, two juice cups, and a box of Gold Fish (yes, all of the essentials). We saw bears, lizards, beautiful plants a bloom, the landscape is a delight, a bronzed pig, played in a waterfall, and then even spent 30 minutes looking at some art. Quiet a morning!
Well, as the time approached 12:30, we were driving away from the trail! It was quite a hike! Let me just state the obvious.... I am soooo outta shape! The stroller was a life saver, and my mutha and my brutha, well, at least they were with me (that way if I passed out, they could save themselves and my children and flee for help). There were old timers just cruising the strip, like it was no big deal. I gotta get with the program. Look for us there tomorrow, Momma and I are gonna start walking that place everyday!
Here are some pictures from the day.
This pig statue, Stella, is just hanging out along the trail. We had to stop and pose with the bronzed beauty!
Bray did not know what to think of ole Stella
This is where the trail takes you right up to the museum.

Why will my children not pose for pictures with their momma!!? I gave them birth, can't they just sit or stand by me and flash a smile!! Geez Louise!
Here we are.
Walking to check out the waterfall.

This is a bear statue with a fish in his mouth.
