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.
