We decided last minute to go "hiking" up the canyon with the Emig's for Family night this week.  Cali and I both scrambled to throw together a picnic dinner, and we met up the canyon for some good ole fashioned family fun.

Cali, Grandma and I stayed back while the husbands took the kids on a short hike.  The canyon was filled with beautiful colors and it was pretty chilly out so it really felt like fall.

As you will be able to tell by these pictures there was definitely no moms around.  Haha.
 Yeah this is a picture of the three oldest boys crossing a river on a log.  No big deal. 

I would have for sure been freaking out if I had been there.

Here Henry wants to try too...of course. 

There are lots of pictures of Joe and the kids...absolutely non of Rob though.  I don't know how that happened.  He must have not been holding still enough. 

 If you look behind Jack you can kinda see Rob's head. Haha.  

Grace, Jack, Rob, Oliver, Tyson, Carolina.

My friend Kelly (Nicole's sister) brought me over some little boy baby clothes the other day.  This vintage jacket that Henry is wearing was one of the things she brought over.  How sweet was that of her??

 Cute huh?

I had to put this one in because Grace looks like some sort of Scandinavian goddess.  

Joe and his girls.

More Hens.  Cortney was trying to get a cute picture of Henry in the coat but that light was low and the baby wouldn't stop moving. 

The four boys...Notice Rob between Oli and Ty laying on the ground some how. 

Emigs. Looking blond and beautiful.


Yup...definitely no moms anywhere in sight. 

Henry Running to us.

Grandma with a tarheels hat on and a open face bologna sandwich.  She loves those things.  She loves to say..."it's nice being queen".  

 I love this picture of us.  Even though my STOMACH looks enormous. 

We had Hot chocolate and apple juice along with our picnic.  It was freezing but fun.  I love FHE when we get out and do something.
