A Sunny Hike:
We are right smack dab in the middle of those darn molars coming in. We have had one little puny and very grumpy baby on our hands. It has made the past few days more challenging than usual. Yesterday I went into town and came home in a bad mood from a stressful grocery shopping trip. Doug asked what would help.
I said Subway sandwiches and time outside.
We borrowed our friends baby backpack, stopped by Subway, and drove just a few miles to our closest natural park. We were the only people there, so we enjoyed a private picnic and clear trails. The only smile we got from Henry the whole time was right when we put him in the backpack. He thought it was pretty cool to be riding on Dad's back.
The hike was super short but it was sunny and beautiful. Henry just soaked it all up.He loved watching the water falls and seeing the turtles sunbathing on a rock. Doug and I enjoyed not having a crying baby for a while and getting some of that sweet sweet vitamin D. It was the perfect way to help turn a hard day into a great day.
