It was about four hours round trip from beginning to the end. With baby with us we had to make a lot of pit stops in shady places. While we were hiking Lauri spotted some prickly pear, so being the adventurous bunch we are, we had to try some. In the end this proved to be a terrible idea for me... My husband being the wonderful man he is, thought he pealed all the prickle's off the prickly pear. Unfortunately the one prickle that was left behind ended up in my tongue. It must have been a sight seeing a group of hikers on the side of the trail saying," I don't see it," "Id es en mah ounge!" After a few minutes my husband spotted the prickly and saved my life by pulling it out of my tongue! Oh boy...what a day!
We did learn a few things on this trip-one that is was way too long for baby, and too hot as well. We ended up having to give her some baby Tylenol when we got home because she wasn't feeling well. I also learned this-if babies were not so resilient and our God wasn't a gracious God, I would have probably broken her already... I worry about her way too much at times. So we will have to stick with short little hiking trips for our precious baby girl!
Here are a couple pictures from our trip. I cannot wait until Baby is bigger so we can take her on another amazing hiking trip! For now though, I am content to enjoy her littleness.
Baby girl was about done! Lauri was an amazing baby carrier!
