After all the hiking on Saturday we went back to the town-home we rented and went swimming in the pool. It was the perfect way to end the day and gear up for Sunday. On Sunday we hiked to the Windows (North & South), Turret Arch, and finally Double arch. On Sunday Finley hiked the entire way without being carried. I was so proud of him.
I am SOOOO glad that I got him (and Berlin) their own little camelback's. Finley loved it and I think it helped make all the hiking a bit more fun for him - and I loved not having to carry his water. I packed Berlin around the whole time. It was a great workout and wasn't that hard (she's barely 21 lbs), but I won't lie, my shoulders are a bit sore today after 2 days of hiking. Being in the pack she slept most of the time which was awkward at times as she would place her head right in the crook of my neck, making it a bit hard to hold my head up completely straight. Berlin of course would have prefered hiking all on her own, but after letting her walk for a bit I realized we'd be there all day & well into the night.
Even though the trip wasn't for me, it was a great way to spend mother's day ... with Ryan and the kids. Now that we are home, we are all TIRED and taking athe day off to just relax at home.
