Table Rock Family Hike

Sunday after church, Steve and I decided to take the kids to Table Rock for some much needed family time.  Steve and I love Table Rock, but had reservations taking the kids; would they be able to make it to the top?

Grandma Collie watched Dillon for us; he surely wouldn't make it.  
The kids were excited to tackle the challenge.  They had never been before and were thrilled to try the 1.5 mile hike.

As we entered the parking lot, we were amazed at the number of cars parked.  Wow!  I've never seen it so packed!  We all unloaded and headed up the hilltop.  As we were starting our climb, Lauren decided to race everyone towards the cross.  I knew what she was in for, so decided to take my time...walk vs her running.  Lucas joined Lauren in running.  As we made the bend towards the top, Lucas needed Daddy's shoulders to finish.  Lauren was complaining of how bad her legs were hurting and how hot she was, but she made it...all of the kids made it!  Steve and I were so proud of them for doing it!  The best part was getting down the mountain and back to our car.  The whole car ride home, the kids expressed how much fun it was and how we should do the hike every week.  Thumbs up to that idea!
