Time for a hike

We had a 1 day break in the dreary weather, and Steven took the opportunity to take pug and boy out for a hike. A friend of ours gave us this backpack, which is pretty nice because I don't think we could've justified the price of buying a new one seeing as how we don't go on hikes that often. Shelby is suited up and ready to go. Vin is snug in the back but insists on sticking his face in the sun.

Time for a hike

Steven returned quite happy with how everything worked out. He made it all the way up to the park. (all uphill!)

Biscuits and hugs for Shelby for being a very good girl and hope little Vin had
fun with his daddy! Mommy, did you get some rest?

I miss using my backpack with my little one (not so little anymore). I did get some major stares when the pug didn't want to walk anymore and I had her in my arms in front and the baby on my back. It made for a good workout however.

Vin and Shelby are lucky kids to have a Daddy who takes them out of a nice hike. I bet Daddy had the most fun just being with the two adorable kids.

A word of warning about the backpack: My daughter had one like it. One day on a walk her baby girl almost pushed herself out of the thing. Lucky for us all, my wonderful son-in-law felt the shift in the weight and was able to keep the baby from toppling out on her head.

So happy to see that you all include the beautiful Shelby in your family outings! She is such a wonderful pug and surely she appreciates being treated as such.

We just got a Kelty carrier (is that what yours is?) It's great to have when we are out in the city, I just need to spend some time figuring out all the buckles and straps! SO many!

Yes, it's Kelty Kids. And yes, there certainly are a lot of buckles and straps, but according to Steven, it's the increasing weight of the boy that makes this carrier a challenge to hike with.
