On Monday Alex, Seth, and I hiked the Paint Branch Trail. It was a 2.7 mile hike. So we hiked a total of 5.4 miles. It was a little steep in a few places and we had to stop and rest a few times, but it is a nice trail. It is paved the whole way. It is nice for pushing the stroller or if you were riding a bike. This trail is really fun and kind of magical. It is surrounded by trees and you feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere and you happen upon a basketball court. You head down a bit further and you come to a small playground. A little bit further down is a pond. All of these places are surrounded by trees, kind of like a "Secret Garden" kind of feel. I am going to take the rest of the children on this hike next week during Spring Break. I think they will like it as well. Alex has now walked a total of 50 miles! Congratulations, Alex!
