Charlie and I went hiking Monday. It was only a couple of miles, but it was a good start! He did great. He entertained himself by pulling on my hair, playing with the fishy toy I attached to the backpack, and watching the birds flitter around. I tried to show him turtles sunning themselves on a rock, but I don't think he knows the difference between a rock and a turtle yet!
We will certainly do lots more of this!
Here you can see the river in the background.
Here's a bonus picture from a few weeks ago, when we were testing out the backpack in the neighborhood!
