The Back 40
In the move I somehow lost our kiddie backpack, and although a lot of the trails we have been traveling are pretty smooth, we haven't been taking the wagon anymore for the Don. We have been out to Golden Ears, and to Kanaka, and a few parts in between, and I must admit, I have wondered how the Don would do. Well, he has blown away all of my expectations and he has been amazing. Today in the woods, it wasn't him that fell, it was me. It wasn't him that was whining about being tired, it was his brother (I must admit, I just about lost it laughing when C-man dropped to the ground and kicked his legs in the air and told me how tired he was).
I am so proud of them both. I am also so happy to be outdoors more. It feels like I have been waiting to get back out in the woods for a long time. Next year, way more camping. This year, more Sunday hikes, more outdoor adventures. This is a great trend!
