Walks with Cora : A Good Hike

As we were headed to our regular route at our favorite park, Cora redirected me over to the trails. We've done the trails a couple times, but she has always been in the backpack carrier. I wondered aloud if we should go back to the car and get the backpack and she told me no... so we forged ahead.

Cora was excited for each obstacle we came to and cheered when she finished the hard ones.  She was so excited about climbing over the fallen trees, she'd hurry ahead looking for the next one. Eventually, she started showing me how she could 'climb' over small roots and sticks on the path.

When we first started out, I thought I'd be carrying her on my shoulders most of the way, but she managed to complete almost the whole path except the last hard hill/steps.  It was so fun to watch her reach an obstacle, figure it out, then confidently crush it.  I love this adventure loving baby.

Once we finished our hike, we headed to the fancy part of the park and check everything out.  Cora showed me how she was 'training' her puppy.  She points at the puppy, shouts "Sit!", sets him up in a sitting position, and looks at me with the proudest grin ever.

When we got in the car, she sighed and said "Good hike!"... yes baby girl it was a good hike!
