Hiking on the Fourth

My family, Jocelyn's family, and Jess and her dad had a picnic and went hiking yesterday. It was crazy! Too many girls! But it was fun. We had hamburgers and roasted marshmallows and made s'mores. Who over thought of roasting marshmallows and sticking it between two graham crackers with chocolate? That person was a genius.

To burn off all the sugar from the lemonade we drank by the gallon, the J's and I found some rocks to climb. Jess was on such a sugar buzz, she climbed as well.
Turns out she can be quite the risk taker.
Ah, the screams of the grown-ups telling her to be careful.

It was trees galore for me. Like my new cowboy boots? I'll have to take some better pictures of them, they have embroidery on the sides.

Of course it's not a picnic without having to pose for pictures. JJ said I should sit in the back since I'm such a donkey's butt about hogging the camera. Am totally not. JJ had too many cookies.


  1. Looks like you had a great 4th, Emily! And, yes, I totally love your new cowboy boots. They seem to suit you well. :)
    JJ looks so pretty! I take it she likes purple? She does look fab in it!


  2. Hi, Emily! I'm Cali! I just found your blog and I really like it! I have to admit that you and I look alot alike. :)
    It looks like you had a really fun 4th of July. I'm totally jealous of your cowboy boots. :)


  3. You are a bunch of well dressed BRAVE girls. I really like the tree and rock climbing pictures. Your cowboy boots rock, as does all the purple!
