I find it satisfying to return to hikes. I don’t always love to do the same hike every week. But I do enjoy a “seasonal check in” if you will. The last time we walked the plantation path at Lapham Peak State Park, I was concerned about how much Graham would walk. I brought the stroller. He ended up walking a lot of the path. That was earlier this summer.
Look at who was the walker this time! It’s so exciting to see how mobile and active he is. The stroller barely got any use as both boys were self-powered. What a difference that makes in my life. It’s teasing me with glimpses of our lives as the boys get more and more independent. What a thrill as a mom!
Pine forests have a special place in my heart. It has a lot to do with how muffled sounds become and how aromatic the needle floors are.
