We found a new trail today that is close by with a really nice wooded area for picnics.
At bedtime tonight Porter was completely overtired from a full day of hiking, awesome They Might Be Giants concert, and friends over late for dinner. Tim had finally gotten him a little settled down in bed by calmly talking about all the nice fun we had today. At the mention of this hiking spot, Porter broke into tears again, wailing, "But we didn't have a picnic on the rock! Waaahhh!" To be fair we had discussed sitting down for snacks somewhere, but everyone was so caught up in exploration that we kept meandering the trails. Poor boy doesn't miss a beat, but that is fine because that cute picnic area is calling Tim & I also so we will be back there soon.
