Welcome to the outdoors


It took 11 days to find a weather window and sneak away from the girls, but at long last I headed out the door with Henry strapped to my chest. Clara was treated to her first hike to the Falls at 16 days and Lilly at 11. I had hoped to beat all those marks with Henry, but not to be.

I predicted Henry would be asleep by Turtle Rock. Amy figured he'd be out by the time we got to the end of the driveway. We were both wrong. He passed out while we were strapping him into the pack. He didn't wake up until we got back. So much for introducing him to the woods.

I, at least, got a good workout. Even though Lilly and her pack is about three times as heavy she's on my back. 10 pounds strapped to my front is way different. How Amy managed to wander around for nine months with him hanging on her I have no idea.
