Most hikes Allan ends up holding a tired Ember half the time. This time we let her sit in the stroller and Allan held Everett!
Ember used a stick to pretend to sweep this entire area we were hanging out at. There was a bench there and the kids were sick to death of hiking (mostly Ember and Everett) so we just stopped and spent time there. Ember cleared pretty much every pine needle out of the area! She was very determined!
Everett got the idea to throw rocks from the bench area we were sitting at into the trees below. We were on a hill so it was fun for him to watch it fly out of sight. He did that for a long time and got excited and proud of himself each time!
I set up the camera and timer to show us all looking off at the lake, which is what we were doing, but then everyone ran off right then to do other things and I didn’t want a picture of me just standing there alone so I just bent over and showed my rock. lol
Allan was kneeling in front of some stairs because Everett really wanted to climb down them but they were steep and dangerous.
Ember and Everett spent lots of time picking up stuff off the ground around them and throwing it off the deck we were on.
Someone texted me. Everett heard my phone beep from the stroller and helpfully went to retrieve it. If I don’t look at my phone when it beeps he gets really annoyed! haha! He likes me checking those messages!
He found a big stick and was happy about waving it around like a sword. He hit a bunch of things with it making a sword poking sound each time.
