|Leaving Lake Tahoe|
The air was crisp and the sun was out. We were all set with Ryder in the ergo, Dixie running about excitedly, and of course lots of layers, water, and snacks packed along. And it's a good thing we were prepared because Marlette Lake ended up being a 5+ hour and almost 10 mile round trip.
Ryder fell asleep after an hour of riding.
Our first glimpse of Marlette Lake.
We made it!
This little cutie was excited to get out of the confines of the ergo and explore the beach for himself.
Before we were ready, we had to turn back to beat the sun.
Today, as I count my blessings, I'm thankful for the freedom we have to enjoy God's beautiful creation. For men, women, and their families - past and present - who have and do sacrifice. I'm thankful for our family and the ability we have as parents to foster a love of nature in Ryder.
