Ok, so I am sure most of you guessed it....my partner is my dog. As much as I would like to hike with another person, (thank you Denise and Matt for offering to hike with me, I will take you both up on it anytime), I have my schedule without a lot of flexibility. The friends that I have here are all moms and most all of them with younger kids. I would love to hike as a family, but the boys just aren't big enough yet. A few more years and they could do it. So for now, Dodger will do just fine. And as much as I was freaking myself out last week, it really was just that, mostly just my mind making me worry more than I needed to. This time around, I knew where I was going, how long it would take, and my trusty pooch to protect me! Don't worry, I am not going off " Into The Wild". Just a weekly hike to try and get in shape. The treadmill just does not cut it..... especially when I am just reminded of how our room needs to be picked up as I am on it.
We did a tiny hike to the top of Hart Park on Sunday as a family. We were trying to find something to do together, out of the house, and away from the video games. It turned out to be a fun little adventure. We even got to tour Hart Mansion this time and the Bison were out this time too. I don't think the boys were too interested in the history, but the had fun chasing each other up and down the hill.
