Short line trail

The blondies and I decided to go to the short line trail at Tallulah Falls, and walk there today instead of in our neighborhood like we do most days. It is such a neat trail that is 3 miles round trip. For those who don't know, it used to be an old rail line that they made into a paved path. It is a great place for the kids to ride their bikes and scooters. Most of the trail is shaded and always several degrees cooler. I just hope that this is not one of the state parks that they are talking about closing to save money. We frequently hike down the hundreds of stairs at the gorge with all four kids (the little ones on our backs), so it would be a shame to loose this great exercise outlet that we have so close to our house.

This video is probably not very exciting to most, but I had one of those moments as a mom that you want to remember forever. J.J. ran the first half of the trail which was a 1 1/2 miles. I was just watching those little legs go and he was breaking my heart with love, so I had to capture this moment on video. Keep in mind that I was walking, pushing Pipi in the stroller and filming with my camera!

Oh yes Caroline....It would be such a shame to lose such a great exercise outlet!Especially for fat people like myself who never ever exercise, let alone hike into a huge hole with a child on my back! Sorry I missed it...:) Sandy
