Morning hike in the local mountains
Went on a lovely morning hike with my little guy. We're just happily chatting as I am pushing the jogging stroller with my 45 lb 3 1/2 year old as we encounter a rattle snake lazily soaking up the sun right smack in the middle of the trail. Waited for a few minutes to let him pass , but he had no such intentions. I had to throw a tiny rock his way to make him slither away as he angrily rattled his tail at us. Hayden was fascinated and said, "Make him do it again Mama". Of course the mama obliged and did it again so we could catch the sound effect on film. What don't we do for our kids?
