Rabbit Mountain Walk

October 15, 2012

We went to Rabbit Mountain for a little hike this weekend.  Isaac walked the whole thing by  himself which is an exciting first!

Here he is, ready to get started and “go up high.”

Here he is standing on a rock, “like a baby mountain goat.”  I was like the mama mountain goat, and Jamie was like the daddy mountain goat.  All Isaac’s words… Smile

“Mama, do you want to take a picture of me?”

We have a picnic at the top.  Water, honeycrisp apples, and dates.

Now for the exciting part.  Running downhill.  Isaac had a big plan for his.  He was a bullet train. I was riding on the bullet train, so I had to run right behind him.  I was instructed to put my seatbelt on so I’d be safe for the fast ride ahead.

Bullet train takes off! Full speed ahead!Rabbit Mountain Oct 2012 073

Bullet train stops for a rest and to wait for Daddy. He alternates between wanting Jamie to be the caboose, and wanting him to be a competing bullet train that we’re running away from.

Another rest.  He was very sweaty and red faced after all this running.  I suggested that drinking water was kind of like a train getting gas, which he thought was an excellent idea.

Near the end, bullet train started to think it was very fun to collapse to the ground because he was broken.  He had to wait for daddy to fix (aka tickle) him.
