If you know me here on Sparks, you know that I like to go for walks and hikes! My husband wasn't always such a fan of going along with my crazy ideas when we went for walks, his idea of a walk is just a nice 3 mile stretch of easy walking. But after hiking the forests of France a few times in addition to finding really nice hiking trails right here in MN, my dear husband has finally seen the light!

Some pics from Frontenac State park on a 4 mile hike that was amazing!

So are you wondering what I mean when I say it can happen!!??
We are heading north for a few days on Tuesday and we were originally only going for 2 nights 3 days but I said to dear husband that I would like to stay for one more night. My husband said,"let me think about it." So I am waiting for his answer, watching him and I knew what was going through his mind! Then he looked at me and started laughing and told me that he couldn't believe it, he was thinking about our trip and the length of time in regard to where and how many hikes we needed to take! I started laughing as he has finally learned how wonderful and fun those hikes are! Now he grew up in Greece and the boy scouts there are really big. He was a boy scout until he graduated from high school so you would think that he would have loved hiking to begin with. He didn't, but he went along with me all the same! But he is an amazing navigator, I would get lost I am sure if I didn't have him along, I might still be wondering in the woods somewhere!
So we ended up adding one more day to our trip and will go about 75 miles further north, almost to the Canadian border! There are some amazing hiking trails in that area as well so now we are looking to see which of the many trails we will take!
And.... my daughter who doesn't like to hike at all, went camping with friends this weekend and sent me a text that her and her friends went on a 4 hour hike! I sent her a text back asking who this was and what had she done with my daughter! LOL
So it can happen. If you don't think it is for you, try it out a few times. Pick easy hikes to begin with. You never know, you might fall in love with it.. because it can happen
Spark on and have a great Sunday dear friends.
Happy Friendship day to all! I learned this morning from another sparker that friendship day is celebrated every first Sunday of August!
