Mountain Goat Run

After our crazy morning photo shoot, things were tired and tense at the house. We had lunch, then napped, and then woke up hurried over to the Mountain Goat Run with the Mississippi Hites. Everyone else was too annoyed and too mad to attempt it.

We arrived as the kids started to run.

Karl dropped us off to join the group and he parked the car.

The kids were excited to run for about…5 minutes.

Then Lucas went on the ground acting like a little goat, since it was the Mountain Goat race.

But the view from the top of the hill…it was worth the hike up.
