Anyway, after the film the kids wanted to go on a hike, so I put Elsie in my baby carrier and we headed out on the Wildflower Trail. It seemed totally reasonable...only .4 mile and estimated to be a 15 minutes hike. I forgot about how short the little guy's legs are though, and a gazillion steps and two scrapes later he was DONE! I had to bribe him with a sucker to get him walking up the very last hill but he made it! All the way on his own two legs and gave me big high fives at the end. I was proud of him!
Needless to say, he fell asleep on the way back and is still out :)
