today was a LONG day. pia and i met-up at 6:00 a.m. and drove out to starved rock for our three hour, 20 lb. hike.

see our matching packs

prior to hiking, pia had to cover the nasty cuts she got from her boots during last weekend’s hike.

it helped, but only slightly as she had to adjust them a couple times during the hike and eventually finished it in her crocs, sockless i might add!

after our hike we headed back to the city, showered and headed to church for our women’s ministry concert of praise worship service. it was an incredible service and perfect ending to a great day! might i mention, a tiring day as well!
