05 Jan Baby’s First Summit
We recently took B for her first winter hiking adventure, up Green Mountain in Boulder (elev. 8144 ft.). Our friend Jeff (B says, “I have more hair than Jeff does!”) and his dog Chile joined us. It was an easy 4-mile out-and-back, made only a bit more challenging by the deep snow in some spots (“Daddy says snowshoes are for sissies!”). B was bundled up in her Baby Bjorn, though her cheeks got a little rosy. She giggled as Ollie and Chile ran in and out of her view. She snoozed as Daddy climbed the steep parts. And toward the end, we all got very hungry and cold, so we headed over to Southern Sun, our favorite brewery, where B feasted on warm breastmilk while Kris, Gina, and Jeff had burgers and beer.
Later, we all took naps at home. We couldn’t ask for a better day!
