Saturday, we took off right after breakfast, and headed to the Jewel Basin for some hiking. It was a beautiful clear day, but kind of chilly. When we arrived at Camp Misery parking lot, we chose the Twin Lakes hike, and started off. The info said it was 2.5 miles to the lakes. The kids started out well, and then we found huckleberries, and they wouldn't keep going happy unless they were stocked up! Luckily, I had thought ahead, and brought a couple extra bags for them... needless to say, we did not make it to the lakes... we might have made it 3/4 mile or maybe one mile into the hike... but we did come back with a half of a gallon bag full of huckleberries, and the kids probably ate that many by themselves!
We only had one little mishap, and that was that Colton forgot to tell us when he had to go potty, so when he had to go so bad, and was trying to get his pants down, he peed all over them! So... we stopped for lunch, laid out his pants to dry, and covered him up with our picnic blanket (which happens to be my baby blanket!) They dried, we recovered, and headed back to the van.
A GREAT way to spend a Saturday. And then, we had huckleberry waffles this morning... and they were every bit as delicious as they sound!
