Although our weekend didn't actually fall over the Labor Day weekend (my hubby works crazy hours), we did enjoy a nice weekend together right before Labor Day. Weekends together are the best. It's amazing how Ephram even knows that weekends are WAY better because daddy & mommy are BOTH home.
I am usually not a great consignment sale hunter, but I happened to score this AWESOME hiking baby carrier at a sale recently. Brand new & 1/3rd of the price--yay!! Ben was really excited too because for a while now, Ephram has not been able to sit comfortably on his back in the Ergo. I think it's because my husband has a ridiculously long torso, so rather than being able to see from a high perch on dad's back, Ephram was getting smooshed down in the middle of his back & couldn't really see anything. *I still love my Ergo though* and Ben has no problems using it forward facing, but I think as Ephram got bigger (he takes after his daddy in the height department), he needed a big boy solution. This fancy pants carrier has a torso adjuster....awesome.
ANYWAY, all that to say, we were happy for the find & decided to hop on over to the state park to give it a try. Little mister & his daddy both loved it and we had a great time at the park. Minus the part at the end where we got back into the car after feeling nice & accomplished with our hike and had ticks ALL over us. Ughhh...
I may have been a hot mess the rest of the day, trying to pick phantom ticks off my body. Yeesh.
I think we may wait a month or two more for our next hike...I'm still recovering from the trauma.
what a cute little peanut. I love both of these guys.
