We have a list of hikes to do by the end of the year and today was Wallace Falls or Lake Serene and we went with Wallace Falls. It was tough but we got good views of the valley and the waterfalls and rivers were ragin'! It was Fio's first time on the trails (or out for any decent walk) in a long time but he rocked it, even garnering compliments from passersby regarding his dapper duds. :)

took his time hiking with Bubba strapped to his chest

The hubs and I were able to have some decent conversation on the hike, which is typical for us and definitely welcomed since we haven't been conversing well in the real world. We think that a lack of couple time is taking its toll on us. I said something along the lines that I used to feel that I always had our marriage backing me up, to fall back on, but lately I don't. I feel abandoned. Oh the woes of new parenthood.
Our dinner out to avoid the Halloween trick-or-treaters wasn't as satisfying since Baby Bananaface decided to be needy and one of the dishes we ordered was blah. Otherwise it was all right and despite some angry outbursts from me, we had a pretty good evening.
We're pretty tired. Hike. Dinner out. Baby feed. Baby bath. Baby bedtime. Baby, I need a drink, but can't have any! So rooibos tea it is.
Here's a bonus weather update video (if it works) ENJOY!
