And I have to say I was soo pleasantly surprised! My husband is the super fit, active type-whereas I am more of the couch potato type, and I was starting to worry that the boys were too-lol. After that hike it seems to me that I may have nothing to worry about! The boys didn't complain once! The youngest didn't even asked to be picked up! They even created their own game called 'Apple Stick' Which basically consisted of taking turning trying to hit an apple with their hiking sticks baseball style.. Hilarity did ensue! So I'd have to say that the first family hike was...a success!
