Before having the baby I had visions of taking her on day hikes in a backpack especially to one of my favorite parks, Afton State Park, which incidentally is only a stone’s throw across the river from where LC was born.
Today, my roommate Zhanglin and I took the baby for a hike. We hiked about 3 miles total, went for a swim in the St. Croix, and had a nice picnic lunch in the sand. It was a hot day and the up and downs of Afton made for a good work out. LC LOVED the water and had a great time swimming. She also enjoyed her first strawberry.
