    Default Lylah's First Hike...With Her Own Two Feet! Stratham Hill Park

    Hi Everyone,

    I hope you guys don't mind me posting this here. It's from an outing to Stratham Hill Park, not a mountain, but definitely memorable. My daughter hiked up the hill on her own, without me carrying her. It was really a special moment, mostly because she smiled the whole way up. She did such a good job and I was really proud. Here's the blog post on it and some pictures from the trek. Again, I hope you guys don't mind me posting but figured many of you with young kids could relate!

    Lylah, very focused on getting to the top!

    Need some help on this one...not sure what kind of flower this is.

    Close up of the tower...looks like they did some work to it recently (paint for sure).

    Lylah playing on the mileage dial. We typically don't let her play on stuff like this, but we were so happy with her hiking up, I made an exception...please don't think I'm a bad parent

    Fun in the park after the hike!

    She really is getting big. And if she had that much fun, I'm sure she's going to love hiking with you more often. Thanks for sharing with us!

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    I have to say I smiled myself when I saw this. My little one is just about the same age (2 in July) and we took her on her first hike on her own two feet a month or so ago. I too was so proud of her for doing the whole thing by herself! It as just a small hill by our house, but quite a trek for her : ) She too wanted to stop and pick up rocks and meander, but had no problem hoofing it to the top and most of the way back down (a full run wasn't the best for her on the downhill, so Daddy's shoulders kept her happy). She'll be a hiker in no time, like to climb up the cairns : )
