Hiking at Elk Creek Falls {Idaho}

Jason came home Friday with a surprise plan for our Saturday - a scenic drive to and hike at Elk Creek Falls. The weather was forecast to be wonderful (almost 60 degrees!!) and it was a perfect idea. We were all very ready to be out of the house and doing something active for a change.

It is about an hour from where we live, but we'd yet to discover it and it was really wonderful! I was feeling a little anxious as we drove up due to the amount of snow still on the ground and the fact I was only wearing my running shoes, not my waterproof boots. But luckily, the trail only had a few spots where snow/ice were still hanging around.

The hike includes look-out points at three different waterfalls - so so beautiful!

The end of an era ..

Monday morning Luke let me know he was up from his nap by knocking on the interior of his bedroom door. This was a first, since he is usually fully contained in his pack-n-play crib.  Since then he's figured out how to climb back into it too.

Fireside music

Jason had his guitar out last night which Luke loves to "help" him play and it was just a very sweet few moments of them together beside the fire, making music.
