to cap our winter break, the four doyle men hiked up mission peak here in fremont. we picked the more leisurely ohlone college trailhead instead of the shorter, steeper stanford ave trailhead because of the kids. that was sort of the problem – it was almost too leisurely and mateo fell asleep about halfway through, which sort of aborted the trip. i don’t know if i could lug that 30lb wet noodle all the way up the rest of the way, even at that granny incline. i think we’ll try again soon, leaving earlier in the morning so we can make it back down before the boys have to take their naps.
the boys got a 2x dose of grandpa this christmas as grandpa hall came down from portland for the holiday and they got to hike today with grandpa doyle.
