Hiking the Y and J-Dawg's (Oh, yes)

We decided that two years is enough of a lag between hikes up to the Y, so we went again last Saturday. It was a first for Tyler, and he LOVED it. We borrowed a baby hiking back-pack from the Harston's, and my manly husband carried Tyler up the mountain. I'm so impressed.

Tyler was our little cheerleader; he kept shouting to McKay, "Go, go, go!" McKay did not appreciate this on some of the longer switchbacks. When we let Tyler out up at the top, he kept trying to jump over the ledge, so we didn't stay up too long.

McKay and Tyler, about half-way up.

Here's Tyler and me actually on the Y. McKay said I had to include a picture of me, even if I was red-faced and sweaty in it. Gross.

We celebrated later with J-Dawg's. If you've never been, it's heaven on earth.

In all its secret sauce and banana pepper-y glory, this is my J-Dawg's polish Dog. I think I need another one right now.

I love it! Chasing sparrows and trying to jump off the mountain? Definitely all boy :) I have never had the pleasure of a J-Dawg...I think you should bring me one when you come, but minus banana peppers - SICK!

I love you!

Mmm...I really need to get up there! That was a dirty trick to put up a picture of your J-Dawg
But, oh well, we had Blue Bell tonight :):):)
There were some great pictures on this post, but I think I liked the one of Tyler chasing the sparrows the best...

Looks like fun! I've never actually hiked to the Y. Am I missing out??
