It had been months since we'd been out of the city. Martin was dying for some fresh mountain air...so we decided to go on our first family outing, our first adventure together as a family of three.
We began our day early at Everdeen's 2 week appointment. Baby girl is growing like a weed and even wore her big girl pants to prove it :) We now have a 7lb 6oz baby...I hope she doesn't grow up too fast.
We didn't drive far...just to the nearby town of Golden to see Lookout Mountain and Buffalo Bill's grave. It was still hot, even high up, but we welcomed the fresh air and filled our lungs with the scent of pine. I feel like I've been a little bit stuck inside for the past two weeks. Martin and I go on our evening walks around a nearby neighborhood, but it just isn't the same as walking along a quiet path or through a peaceful park. Our latest apartment nestles up to a busy street and somehow that doesn't seem suitable for newborn ears. Needless to say, we all three welcomed our mountain adventure.
Everdeen slept the entire time, except for an occasional one-eyed peek. She wasn't too interested in being a cowgirl or sitting in a teepee.
