During lunch I suggested we might take a hike on the trail before heading home .
E: Okay. Do you mean we will we go in the car to get to the trail?”
Me: yes we will
E: Then this is the best day ever!
This boy has learned to embrace joy (gets that from his mama). So off we went, with Roo tucked securely inside his jacket, to the pipeline trail. I knew we would see goats, horses, and maybe some sheep. I also figured it wouldn’t be crowded because it was overcast. Up the hill, down the hill, swishing through the grass. We walked a bit further than those little legs could manage so he needed a lift for part of the return trip.
Lifting him up I said; “Oh my, you are getting so big!” to which he responded, “That’s my favorite thing you say gramma.”
