Burbidge/Newell Hiking club

Posted by Picasa

Today was our first official hike of our newly formed hiking club. We are going to hike somewhere once a month and anyone can join us that wants to.
We hiked up Mt. Eleanor until we got to the snow line. (a good hour) It was fun and some of us realized how out of shape we've gotten!!!
Our next hike date will be Feb. 13th
Fri. January 29th we're going to have a potluck/planning/game night to plan it.
We all had a great time. Some of the highlights were: Devlen loved the hike and kept well up to the front, he even broke out into a run sometimes, Flat Stanley (a friend on loan from Wilson) came along, & every once in a while the sun would break through the clouds and we could see how very high up we were and the beautiful lake Cushman below.
Great fun, more to come!!!!

Today Baylee Ellen Burbidge turns 5

Here's a few of the pictures we have of her.
She is a fun loving, fast talking & even faster thinking, little firecracker of a girl. We sure love having her in our family.
