Hermit Island

Today I was supposed to run 4 miles and watch college football. When Christine called and asked if we wanted to hiking around Hermit Island I quickly decided that was a much better idea. Today was such a beautiful fall day, I couldn't pass up a hike with some of my favorite people. Ty and I went while Ruddley stayed home and worked on the house. We sure did miss him.

Our hike was beautiful!! I'm really not sure how far we went but we were out for about 3 1/2 hours. I think that's pretty impressive when you are hiking with a 3 and 5 year old. We defiantly got off the trail at times and ended up doing some serious rock climbing to get back on...all while carrying Tyler in the baby bjorn (shhh don't tell Ruddley!). At one point Christine says "this is kind of a difficult hike to be doing with a newborn". Oh well, we are hardcore and we made it! We hiked along the coast as much as we could which made for some beautiful pictures. We stopped at a few different beaches so the kids could play, Tyler could eat, and we could re hydrate ourselves.

Mackinna and Kaden. Super troopers hiking!

The Campbell's having some fun!

I seriously love Maine!

On the way back to the Campbell's campsite we saw 4 deer. We didn't just see them in the distance, they were right in front of us and didn't seem to scared. Mackinna on the other hand was not a fan and said "can we be loud so we scare them away"...haha such a cutie. Although, by the 4th deer she was not so bad.

Right behind this guy and his kid is one of the deer we saw. It was just standing in this campsite.

As expected, Ty slept through most of it...but he was a champ:-) I can't wait to take him camping next summer.

Mackinna and Tyler after a long day!
