Hikes and other fun stuff

We started out the new year right by being outside in the fresh air. On January 1st, we went on Rowan's first hike with Mom and Quinn out at Oak Mountain.
Rowan loves to look out, so the front carrier is where it's at for him.
A babbling brook.
The excitement was perhaps a little too much:)

He woke up happy with Mom (Grandmommy) talking to him.Here's Mom talking to Rowan.And here is his response.When we got home, I got a few more pictures of Mom and Rowan that weren't blurry for once!

We went hiking again this past weekend (January 11th - Happy Birthday Eamon and Rae). This time it was Emily, Clarence, Rowan, Laney, Sophie, and me. We had a lovely time, but I did not bring my camera because, for the most part, I had Laney on the leash and feared somehow dropping it (the camera, that is). But we had a great time. The dogs played, Rowan looked around and took in the world. It was great fun. But this time, he got fussy towards the end, and Clarence had to carry him on his side so he could fall asleep. But we were almost at the end when he started to fuss, so I'd say he's still a big fan.

We went on hike on my birthday too! My babe did not like it though :(
I sat down and was trying to figure out what was going on in there and Nathan looked back all alarmed and said "you better not have that baby out here" hehee. Not really so funny if you think about it though. I think it was just the straight down decent we have to do to get from our backyard into the forest and the fact that there is no trail so there is lots of tripping and stumbling b/c the leaves cover everything up.
He looks so big all bundled up. I think there is a wrap carry that you can do on your hip ... I'll bring mine this weekend if you want to try it.
