Frozen Head State Park to hike the Interpretive Loop Trail or as Kiddo has dubbed it, the Interpretive Dance Loop Trail. Teenagers can be so funny sometimes.
Osprey Poco Plus Kid Carrier. Total time lapsed from arrival to hitting the trail was somewhere in the ballpark of 30 minutes or so. Something we are still getting used to.
We were finally off and down the trail. I carried Bug in the carrier, while Robin and Kiddo happily hiked along behind us. Hiking with camera at the ready and in no pain at all, Robin was in pure bliss considering she wondered before the surgery if she'd ever get to hike pain free again.
Not even halfway into the hike, we reached the small cascade into the creek that follows alongside the backside of the interpretive loop. It was here, that Robin had realized that she had forgot to bring extra memory cards and she had now used up all the space in the one that was loaded in her camera. With such a dilemma, Robin opted to walk back to the car since it wasn't very far and she was enjoying the new freedom from pain. Kiddo, Bug, and myself hung out at the bench across from the creek from the cascade and enjoyed the scenery.
You have to take your time with little ones. They love to explore, but you also have to establish boundaries with them, yes the same ones over and over again and again. Sometimes you even have to
We finally made it back to the parking area. Bug had hiked her first trail on her own two feet, or at least a third of it anyways. Afterwards, her and her sissy, took off to play on the playground in the picnic area at the trailhead. Robin got to take many photos of them, and I packed all the gear back into the car so that we could make our way back home. It was a great day and a great hike to celebrate our Anniversary.
