I really thought I could carry Shawn, but Bret said no way! Luckily Grandma and Grandpa Z were willing to watch him for a couple hours while we went on our big adventure. After a few switchbacks we were all panting like mad dogs and Bret said, "Aren't you glad we don't have Shawn?" I had to admit that carrying Shawn wouldn't have been very easy.
We couldn't have asked for a better day!It was so fun to be together!. . . laughing, talking, sharing water, taking breaks to rest, listening to Bret's stories . . . It was great!
Once we got home, Bret and I felt like our muscles had all turned to Jello. We were tired and ready to sit down and watch the cougar game. The next thing we knew the kids were asking "Can we go out and play?" and they played all afternoon!
