Friday Walk in the Woods

Despite waking up to rain, we went for our walk in the woods this morning anyway. I’m trying to make it a weekly habit, right? Yeah. Didn’t work so well today.

Timothy was not interested in walking very far. He kept just stopping and glaring at me. I ended up carrying him for most of it. The second photo’s pretty blurry, but it really illustrates his look of “I am not amused by this” very effectively.

Ben, on the other hand, was having a blast jumping in mud puddles because we actually put his welly boots on today instead of hiking boots. Welly boots mean you can jump and splash to your heart’s content, and boy did he! Once we got past all the fun mud puddles, though, he was tired of walking and just wanted to be back at the car.

By the time we got to the car, Timothy was asleep again in the vest-carrier that I made when he was a baby (it’s still the easiest in/out and least bulky carrier I have!). (Photo by Ben.)


And Ben was muddy. Thank goodness for the rainpants!

    I love that shot of Tim. I’m not sure I’ve seen him looking quite so glum. Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    Ben looks like he was having a ball. It is not everyday that you are given free reign to stomp through puddles. Tim was not happy.

    Awwwww! What an awesome mama to walk through the woods in the rain! Ben looks like he had a ball in the puddles!! And although Tim didn’t look happy in walking he looked pretty comfy in the carrier! 🙂
