On Labor Day we went hiking at Pahranagat Wildlife Refuge. It was overcast and a whole lot cooler than the temperatures we are used to. The kids hiked farther than I expected them to! Even Alex said it was pretty.
On the way back to the car I used some tricks I learned from articles about hiking with kids. I threw a rock and told Sabrina to go get it. I asked who could get to the birdhouse first, Frank or Alex. And yes I ended up giving Sabrina a piggyback ride part way.
