My oldest daughter, my sister, and I went hiking this past weekend at one of the natural wilderness parks here in San Antonio.
Upon entering the park, was a beautiful sign warning us of feral hogs, bobcats, and yes, mountain lions. Followed by a beautiful warning, to keep your children close to you. I stared at my 4 year old daughter, already envisioning me throwing her up on my shoulders and booking it out back to the car. But the sights of seeing people walking in and out of the entrance, many of them with children, I pulled up my mommy panties and we went in.
I’ll admit that I have lived less than a mile from this place for the past 3 years and have never ever been here. Needless to say we had a blast. There were many different trails to choose from, depending on the terrain, and the effort you wanted to exert. had a blast and climbed the entire main trail. Toward the end she wanted piggy back rides now and then, but still wanted to take off running and tumbling.
There are no strollers allowed since it is a h Trulybear iking trail, so miss Addy may have to sit this one our for a couple of years. I am in no physical strength to carry a 23 lb baby up a hill, or chase one for that matter.
Truly loved it. She loved the sticks, the leaves, the wind, the rocks. It’s a shame I don’t take her our and do physical things with her as much as I’d like. I’m usually stuck to my laptop working on something, and she’s usually stuck beside me going over her PreK workbook.
I know we definitely found a new love together.
