Hiking with tots

One must always wear the correct gear for a hike through the forest.

20170426_170731 If at all possible, rain boots, worn on the wrong feet, are ideal.  Of course pajamas are a first choice… when nothing else is clean.

Being mindful of safety is always a priority when hiking with small children, so do be sure to help them find giant sticks.

And of course, no hike with little ones would be complete without at least one full meltdown.

Just another day in the life of a mom trying to keep her kids away from screens… if only for a couple of hours.
