Training Hike


Today the Warlock and I took the kids for a mini-backpacking trip (read:  hike with backpacks).  It went quite well.  All of the kids hiked with minimal complaint.  In fact, I think the Warlock was the biggest complainer.  In his defense, the mosquitoes had decided that he was the most delicious human on the planet.  If I had been him, I would have bailed, so he still gets a tough guy award.

Boo hiked with a Camelback.  She drank the whole thing!

How fun. Did you see any things of interest that are animal, vegetable, or mineral? Also, Skin So Soft from Avon diluted to 50% is supposed to be good mosquito repellent. Although, when those darn mosquitoes are hungry enough, nothing seems to stop them.

Cute little miss chugging her water. Darling. I'm sad I missed the rodeo this year. It's such a fun Texas cultural experience...and GREAT people-watching. Looks like you guys took advantage of everything. Love the deer eating Pippi's shirt.
