Peralta Trail Hiking

Another hike in Peralta Trail Canyon. We love that place! Allan started off wearing Ember in the ergo. PhotobucketPhotobucket

But Ember didn’t want to be carried, she wanted to run free. PhotobucketPhotobucket

Actually she wanted to stand in place playing with dirt. That’s a fun activity (not for me) but we really wanted to hike so, back in the carrier she went. Photobucket

She’s been really clingy to only me lately. She used to be happy hanging out with Allan but now pretty much every time he’s holding her she’s reaching for me. Photobucket

I passed the camera off to Allan and he took the next four pictures. PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

My kids love this giant rock with a hole in the top. PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Brooklyn climbed to the top and through the hole. PhotobucketPhotobucket

Allan hopped in there to add perspective. Photobucket

Cute! Photobucket

It’s surprising to me how old she is now. She’s growing up. PhotobucketPhotobucket

Watching Brooklyn with interest. Photobucket

Sierra wanted to give it a try next. Photobucket

My boys! PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

We hiked on a little ways further until we got to this shady spot with a big rock. The kids really wanted to stop and play there, so we did. Photobucket

Ember tried her hardest to climb up there. Photobucket

This is where Ember was dancing in that other post. Photobucket

Ember’s dancing style is to bend her arms and pump them and squat a bit and shake her booty. It’s so cute, I have several videos of her doing it but my movie editing software isn’t working so I can’t share them. But anyway, the other kids always copy her. Photobucket

She then takes her booty shaking seriously. So seriously she needs to hold on. Photobucket

I just can’t get enough of this little girl!! I am so thankful every single day for her in my life! PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Payson was climbing this rock and Brooklyn came over and grabbed him and pulled him off so that she could climb up. And that sentence pretty much sums up Brooklyn’s personality and the way she treats her brother ๐Ÿ™ Photobucket

Poor Payson. I feel like I’m constantly telling his sisters to be nice to him. PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

There were a few stumbles during our hike. Photobucket

Sierra had the worst. She fell twice and got pretty scuffed up ๐Ÿ™ Photobucket

There are a lot of butterflies flying around here in Arizona this time of year. Brooklyn loves catching them and she does it really well. She’s very gentle so she doesn’t harm them, then she holds them a bit and sets them free. Photobucket

Allan took these of Brooklyn and all the pictures in the rest of this post. PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
