Max and Alexander hiking with our dog in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. We packed our lunches and water bottles. But it is not easy. When we start hiking, the crying starts because “it is too cold” or “the snow is too deep”. My favorite after hiking 5 minutes is “Are we there, yet?” It can be so easy to give up, turn around and sit all day drinking hot chocolate from afar but we can’t. We are the role models, we have to get out there with them, and play together. Once they start playing with the snow they can’t stop and don’t want to go back. Get them tired and you will be rewarded.
