Another First For Molly

Molly made her very first hike up Sleeping Giant yesterday!  I told her that she was going to have a blast and she did!
It was really hard moving along in the beginning of our hike because all she wanted to do was to sniff EVERYTHING.
 We had a gorgeous autumn day!

 There's the castle, Molly!   Dad says we're going to the top just for you!
 So how do you like the castle, Molly?
 She didn't like climbing the steep ramps in the dark narrow hallways to get to the top.  She prefers to have her feets on solid ground.
 Look at the note we found on the windowsill.  You can bigify it if you want to.
 We're heading back down and Molly is doing just fine on the steps. 
I was sure thirsty. Weren't you, Molly? 
Molly preferred to drink the water from the cooler that mom brought for us. 
 And I'm sure pooped after that fun climb.  You too, huh!
So what did you think of Sleeping Giant, Molly?  Do you want to go back again really soon?! 
You betcha!

So until next time..........

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

  14. That sure looked like a fun hike!! I bet it was alot for little Molly to take in!! It reminds us of when we run around like CRAZY by the water and then we have to run all the way up the hill to get home. We are so exhausted when we get there and you guys look the same!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug
