Rose River Trail

On Saturday, er, I mean, yesterday some members of the Biggest Loser Fredericksburg went on a 4 mile hike in Shenandoah National Park. It was a beautiful cold day. It was a beautiful hike. Although I was sadly disappointed by the complete lack of wildlife. I think I have been spoiled by my previous trips to Shenandoah and duped into thinking the wildlife are shameless paparazzi lovers. Seriously. I usually see insane amounts of deer. Gobs of them. And I've even seen black bears. This time? Nothing. Zip. Nada.

But we did catch this action:

Must be mating season. Check out Olivia's face. Classic. I am merely admiring the beauty of the world around me while y'all can just go on with your bad selves. Or something to that effect.

I lovelovelove this picture. Notice how I am so completely bundled up and Katherine is wearing a tshirt:

And this one:

And this one of Katherine, the Amazon queen. Not because she's tall, but because she looks like a warrior. No Retainer Girl in sight.

And this one of Olivia, that she yelled at Jonny not to take and which she will most likely hate, but that I think is an amazing picture. (Um, Katherine, how were all those thats and whichs? Did I do okay?))

So after the awesomeness of the hike, we stopped in Culpeper on the way home and ate dinner in a little diner that had oldies in the jukebox and cheeseburgers for $3.95. What a wonderful day!

It absolutely was!

And the "thats" and "whichs" were acceptable, but you used two closing parentheses.

Tim and I had a great time and we couldn't have gone with a better group of people. Thanks J- for making it happen.

Gosh, I am just so darn photogenic.
