13+ km hike up and around Mt. Longonot

Our family at the top!
 Early Saturday morning we set out of the city in a van with a group of teammates to hike Mt. Longonot which is a crater about an hour and a half out of Nairobi. We all packed snacks, a picnic lunch and lots of water for a day of adventure in the sun

We were so proud of our boys for making the 13 plus km hike!

Sweet family bonding

Some of the downhills/slopes were a little scary

Still smiling with dusty faces - proud of our day's accomplishment

Josh enjoyed guessing what type of animal each skull was
We were amazed at how refreshing and fun it was to get out of the city and experience such a challenging yet exciting hike with breathtaking scenery. We are again thankful to spend these months here with our teammates though we're not able to be in South Sudan where we all really belong.
