We barely survived but we did.
We hiked up to the Timpanogos caves.
It took us about 55 minutes to get up there.
I had the privilege of carrying the Noni.
Justin carried the Ruby.
She did walk some of the time but Justin definitely did his fair share of carrying.
We are sore.
More sore than I have ever been.
Every inch of my body hurts- and I expect that it will for a LONG time.
The Savages came along for the torture.
We were all wiped out by the end.
I am telling you that hike is hard.
There was a point where I wasn't sure if Noni and I were going to make it.
But we did.
And we were the first ones to get up there.
It was a close race.
But we won.
We are that awesome.
I would even go as far as to say that we are unbeatable.
I challenge any mother/25 pound infant combo to a Timpanogos duel.
Bring it. But please wait until I am healed... That could take a long time.
Just in case you don't believe that it was hard there is no denying these pictures.
That is true blue- through and through genuine SWEAT.
And to prove that we made it to the top- we have this picture.
We explored the caves and enjoyed every moment of it.
Despite the desperate attempts of the ranger tour guide.
He did all he could to make sure that every aspect of the tour was a downer.
No talking. No laughing. No having fun.
His only rules.
He didn't know who he was touring though.
He didn't succeed in his fun squashing.
And I think it annoyed him...
And for your pure enjoyment.....
Here is our after picture.
Ruby even looked up at Justin on our way down and said 'I think I might fall asleep.'
30 seconds later she was.
This is what we all looked like.
Its not pretty- but its honest.
Ruby looks exceptionally happy. I think its because she didn't have to carry herself up or down that mountain...
It really was a great experience. I am proud to say we did it. I DID IT! I carried that baby and it was awesome.
