We spent the morning of our New Year's Eve hiking up to the Palmer Lake Reservoir with our good friends, the Milners. Lucky for us the trail wasn't that icy so we were just fine without our trekkers on. We did take advantage of using our polls though. Once we reached one of the upper lakes we stopped so I could feed Madeline. Everyone decided it was a great time to eat lunch as well. The kids had fun playing on the frozen lake and at one point Peter tried to crack it with a huge rock. That wasn't very successful, thank goodness, because the lake was frozen pretty thick. After eating lunch we got our gear back and headed back down the trail because it was starting to get cold. It was so fun to be with good friends on this New Year's Eve morning.
