Trippstadt Hiking

Saturday was warm and sunny, so we went on our favorite hike to Trippstadt. It is a really beautiful walk with little wooden bridges which crisscross over a stream. The boys like it because they can climb up the cliffs and hang from all kinds of trees. Grace fell asleep in the car on the way there, so she rode in the backpack for the fist hour. She loves the pack, but I got her out so she could run around some. She loves hiking and just being outside. We took some pictures and then she was walking on a flat part of the trail next to the stream and she just slid right in and was soaked up to her waist. She was shocked how this could of happened to her,she didn't cry but was definitely stressed, because of the freezing cold water. We stripped her down to her onsie and barefeet and then I had to carry her the rest of the way. I definitly got a work out, this girl is solid and not at all petite. She loved it and I ended up sticking her feet in the sleeves of her jacket on the way back, because it was starting to get cold. We stopped by the BX on base to buy her some pants, because we all wanted to go to our favorite pizza place for dinner and the boys insisted that Grace needed some bottoms. The BX has no clothes nothing but a pair of shorts so we bought them. This girl does not get cold. I think after being in so many layers in China for so long she is happiest when she is naked. She has started stripping down at night whenever I put her in footed pajamas. It is getting to be spring, so I just packed them all away, maybe Sophie will like pajamas with feet. Anyway, it was a great day and I'm glad Grace doesn't fall apart, even when things don't go as planned.
