So, while today was about Mike and Amy, we were also there for the kids. Besides the trip to Mountain’s Edge, this was their first hiking trip.
There were so many trails and places for us to go it was a little overwhelming. We basically let the fact that we needed pictures of the two love birds lead us to where we would stop and hike. We got some great shots of all four of the kids and that’s something I’m always trying to get.
The visitor’s center was a great place to start off. We got all our maps and instructions there. The kids were able to look at different exhibits of rocks and fossils and really get psyched for what we were about to do.
We need to get used to doing things like this on a regular basis. It’s something the physical therapist said we should be doing. The closer Jacob gets to walking the more we need to expose him to different types of physical activity. Hiking on different terrains is a perfect way to help his muscles grow and strengthen.
