Explorers extraordinaire

Having dogs has made hiking a daily event. We've been taking the kids since they were days old strapped to our backs. They have become so accustomed to it, I think they look forward to it as much as the dogs.

They love to scale rocks, jump rivers and collect nature along the way. Usually they serve as trail guides leading the way and then duck behind a tree so they can pop out and scare us.

On Mothers Day they both found me a present!

And this afternoon, Camryn fell off the plank walk into the mud! Resourceful Dylan grabbed a skunk cabbage leaf to use as a cloth to wipe her off. But he pulled so hard that when it broke loose he fell backward into the mud too!!

But the muddy troopers kept on trucking. Nightly tick checks and brown murky bath water don't even deter these explorers. And the symphony of snores coming from the dogs as well as the kids validates why it is an essential part of our day!
