Hike

So, this past Sunday, Bryce and I went on a hike along the Germany/France border. It was the most challenging thing I have ever done! We woke up at 6am. We had to be at the BX ready to go by 7:45am. We left at around 9am and road in a van for about an hour and a half. We arrived and started our hike at around 11am. It was pretty much uphill the entire hike. We hiked to a couple of castles and our final destination was a look out where we could see Switzerland. We ate lunch on top of the look out and then headed our way back down. Coming down the mountain was more challenging for me personally because it really works your calf and butt muscles. My butt has been sore for the past 3 days! ugh! Maybe its a good thing! :) When we got back from the trip, Bryce and I went straight for a nap!! We took a long nap cause we only got 4 hours of sleep the night before. It was a ton of fun and a great experience!! We hiked about 4 miles in less than 3 hours. The tour guide said we finished an hour early!! No wonder we were so exhausted!!

Also, today, my friend Ashley Neri had her baby girl!!! She was born at around 6:30 this morning and weighs 5 pounds 1 ounce. Bryce and I cant wait to go see her this evening. Her name is Izzy, short for Isabella. She was born about 2 weeks early. Ashleys fluid levels were really low so they had to induce her. Its funny because our other friend, Kristie Mimms, is due in November and she is naming her girl Bella, short for Isabelle. Appariently, its the most popular name at the moment.

Bryce had a dentist appointment this morning and got 2 more teeth filled. He cant really eat much today. I feel so bad for him. I just hope after all this work is done on his mouth, he will start to feel better!!
