a fall hike

Last week B. had fall vacation, a whole week of spending time together as a family!
The weather was beautiful all week, and one day we decided to go for a hike in a nearby forest.

B. carried Micha in the Beco, it had been a while since Micha had been strapped in like that and at first he was not having it. 
Luckily he decided he liked being carried and we were able to enjoy a fun little family hike. 


We stopped half way on a hill overlooking a herd of sheep grazing in the valley below. 
Their shepherd ( a girl!) was sitting close by drinking tea and reading a book while her dogs tended to the sheep. Isn't that the coolest job?

We ate a picnic of sandwiches and hot chocolate and when our bellies were full we carried on with our walk.


At the end of our hike we took a family picture on the same spot we took ours last year.
One of us has changed quite a bit!

I think we might make this an annual tradition.

We love hikes in the fall!


Love, Maria

  1. You used to have a puppy?
    Also, that shepherd job sounds so romantically ideal. Except when it rains probably;)

      And no, shepherding in the rain doesn't seem as romantic...
