Two days ago, Hubby, Peanut, my in-laws, and I went for a nice hike near my in-laws house. It was a beautiful, sunny day. A perfect day to go for a hike.
I have taken Peanut on many walks these past few weeks but she has never been on a walk in the woods. So I strapped her into the baby carrier and off we went! Peanut just loved looking at all the trees. She couldn’t figure out what she wanted to look at. There was just so much for her to see. I loved watching her head tilt back and forth and see her eyes roaming all over the place.
We made it halfway through the walk before all the stimulation caught up with her. The steady movement of me walking lulled her to sleep. I put a light receiving blanket over her to keep the sun out of her face while she was asleep. We walked for almost 2 miles before we were hungry and ready for dinner. She woke up when she were almost back to the car. I guess the heat from both of our bodies (plus being covered with the receiving blanket) made her too hot and woke her up.
I was really happy she enjoyed the hike because we will be taking many, many more during the summer.
