Riley has been hiking before... with Nana and Papa, with Aunt Trina, Ruth, and Grandma, but had not been hiking with his parents. So, for Memorial Day we decided to do on our own family hiking trip!
He was content sitting in the carrier on the way up the mountain, but about 30 min into the hike, he started getting really fussy. "Let me out! Let me out!" (At least that was the interpretation we got from his whining.) We let him out... and look what he wanted to do!
Riley cruised along for nearly 100 yards, and could have kept going except Christy's back wouldn't let her. Needless to say he wanted to walk all the way back but was stuck in the carrier.
