Our First Backpacking Trip
We started near Franklin Basin on Danish Pass on the Highline Trail. We made it about 14 miles which was pretty good considering Kyle was packing at least 80 pounds.
No turning back now.
We had so much fun.
Taking a brake for lunch on the Bloomington Lake.
Ben loved his first backpacking trip. He only cried for a little bit at night. I think he is going to be a good backpacker when he gets a little older.
This is a little taste of what the trail looked like on our way down. It was so steep.
Some of the trail was not managed all that well, but Kyle's contraptions was the best for the adventure. It held up very well and protected our little boy just great.
This is where we set camp up.

At the end of our backpacking adventure. We ended up at Willow Flats.
Grandpa Steve-O met us with chili to end our fun trip.
Ben thought he was so cool driving down the road with just a seat belt.

Party Time in the Bath Tub!
Ben loves the bath. Whenever I start the water for the bath he is crawling and trying to get into that tub. Even if it means leaving his clothes on. He loves playing with the bath foam and watching it disappear.

This is what my cute, peaceful, sleeping baby usually looks like. Normally, I would leave him sleeping in his swing, but one day I went into the kitchen to finish dishes, when I came back this is what I found.
He had climb out of his swing to eat and play with the dirt.
I don't know what the deal is with dirt, but he loves it.
