Five Miles of Babywearing

Today we went for a hike on the Noland Trail. Little did I know Travis was wanting to do all FIVE MILES! I was thinking maybe half that especially since I was the one back carrying RC. I must say without our Beco Butterfly II, today would have been impossible. RC was so comfortable he just chilled on my back checking out all the trees and turtles. At one point he even snuggled in to take a nap on my back! Hopefully soon my side pocket will come so I can add a diaper, etc. onto the waist belt of the pack.

While I wasn't planning on 5 miles, I am happy we did it. It was nice to spend time as a family and at the same time get some good exercise (with an additional 20 pounds on my back!). Here are some pictures from today's adventure!

The giant snapping turtle. Took us a while to find him.

The end marker. I can't believe I went all 5 miles with RC on my back!

  1. Wow what a hike with one on your back, but so awesome at the same time! I miss hiking, and hope we can start it up again some day!
