We were very busy this weekend celebrating Memorial Day. On Saturday, Myla, Kinsley and I joined A2 and my parents for the parade downtown. Myla had a great time waving to all the cars that went by, but she kind of lost interest when she got a sucker. On Sunday we had a BBQ with the family over at our house to celebrate Memorial Day and to spend time together. Myla had the best time playing hide and go seek with Mam-mam and taking “walks” around the back yard.
Today we took advantage of the warm weather and the day off together and headed out to do some hiking. We’ve talked about taking Myla out for a while and when I found this hike/trail that was deemed easy, we decided that we could totally do that. It was an easy drive and once we loaded up, we were off to explore Castlewood Canyon. Myla did awesome and picked up rocks the whole time we were on the trail for her pockets, only to drop them back on the path when we were going back for lunch. I think her favorite part was the “rock steps” but she will tell you it was the puppies that we saw on the trail.
Kinsley did pretty well too, once we figured out that she did not want to face me in the backpack, but forwards so she could see. She chatted a lot and sucked on her fingers but did not like the wind that blew in her face. (But really, do any of us?) I was pleasantly surprised that she was so easy about it, makes me easier about doing another one.
