Take a hike – Summer Checklist Update #7

In the past, when we’ve gone on a hike as a family, it’s been a fairly easy stroll in the woods on a pretty flat surface (so flat, that a stroller could easily go on it.) Well, we went camping this summer and went on a hike – what we thought would be a pretty easy hike.

.5 mile? Yea. Totally doable!

Except that that .5 mile was on rocky terrain and straight up and then straight down – and we did this right after a lengthy cave tour.

The bigger kids did great but baby girl was the super adventurer that day. She walked the entire time! She had to hold my hand and she slipped, tripped and fell a couple times but she did it. What a trooper!

The list thus far:

  • Make lemonade.
  • Eat at Big Bowl.
