Family Hike
On Saturday, August 11th, the day after school started, we had beautiful weather. The temperatures were in the low 80's, and it was wonderfully sunny. I decided it would be fun to take a family hike.  Despite the fact that I was probably the only person who really wanted to go (which was a fact that would be pointed out later in the day), we headed to Edwin Warner Park in Nashville for some outdoor fun.

We decided on a 2 1/2 mile loop that went up some hills in the woods, and we started out with all smiles.


It wasn't long until we found some interactive nature.  This frog didn't seem to like the interaction, but Emily sure did!


A little over half way into the hike, we reached a very steep portion of trail.  Emily was not a fan of this.  Despite the fact that she had recently hiked the Grand Canyon, it was a slow and torturous climb.  At some point, she may have even said something like "Why did we come on this hike? You were the only one who wanted to come!"  When she reached the summit, however, her attitude changed quickly, and she apologized and conceded that the family time was fun, and she enjoyed the time talking with me on the way down the hill (always more fun going down than up, right?).

We took along another little hiker who had no trouble at all with the hills.  Her energy seemed boundless...



But on the way home, the effects of the hike were obvious.


We had a wonderful Saturday, and it was a great way to fit in one more fun event before the busyness of the school year kicked in for good!

Coming down is possibly easier than going up if you haven't climbed the Chimney Tops in the Smokies. Grammy
