When we asked James what he'd like to do today, he thought for a moment and then said "go on a hike!" Fantastic idea kiddo. So after naps we loaded up the car and drove high into the Utah mountains. As we got closer and closer to our destination the rain started to fall.
It was fantastic.
We parked the car and let James get out of his carseat and sit in the front with us. We rolled down the windows and let him stick his arm out into the cool drops. And then, ever so slowly, the rain stopped. We stepped out of the car, watching for puddles, pulled on sweatshirts and coats, and off we went.
2 months and this was Juliet's first sighting.
We decided early on to not hike the entire way to the lake. The air was just a little too cool and the toddler was just a little too grumpy so we decided to turn around after our moose sighting. That's ok though, there were more rivers to look at.
Want to see James on the same trail when he was 9 months old? How quickly things change.
