adventuring with friends

We've been making new friends 'round these parts.

I love new friends!

A couple of weeks ago, we went hiking with a cute family from our ward at church.  The weather was finally nice enough to go, so we took advantage of it!

We were attempting to hike up to the "B" on the side of the mountain.

It never happened.

But we had a good time trying to get there.

Not too far from where we live is the Golden Spike National Historic Site.  It's commemorative of the spot where the Central Pacific and the Union Pacific Railroads met for the first time, creating the first transcontinental railroad.  A little over a week ago was the 145th anniversary, so they had a little reenactment of the ceremonious driving of the gold spike - period costuming included!

We headed over there with that same family on a Saturday morning.

We all loved it!  Even poor Ellie, who had been struggling with some sort of nasty virus for about a week, clapped enthusiastically every time the crowd clapped.  Sometimes with an added, "AHHHH!" for good measure.

Ellie and I have also been to playgroups and playdates lately and it's fun to meet new people and watch her try to interact with other kids.

The world would be a place of constant hilarity if adults interacted like children.
