We did this same hike almost exactly three years ago...what a difference huh? I can't decide who has changed more - B Daddy or the Squirt.
The trip back up was slower and um...let's just describe it as "less enthusiastic" than the hike in. By the end of our trek, B Daddy had Blue Eyes on his back and Squirt on his shoulders while I carried Sweet B for every. single. uphill. step.
We decided to reward ourselves with a little DQ on the ride home and finished the day by carrying 3 sleeping kiddos straight to bed. Ice cream can be dinner every once in a while right?!
