This Memorial Day we went hiking in Chino Hills Park with my parents and gave the new back pack a full work out. Laina had a wonderful time riding along. MOST of the time she was alert and looking around and commenting in her own baby talk about the things she saw and heard (mostly "bird" and "airplane"). At lunch time, she was walking around the place where we ate lunch and started running down a hill that went down towards a very shallow, yet existant creek. She's not a good enough walker and couldn't put on her breaks well enough and I had to run down the creek and grab her before she fell down into the creek and got all wet! Here's a picture of where we ate lunch. It's Laina with my parents.
Here's a look of Chino Hills State Park. The spring lasted very late this year and the hills are still green and the weeds, thistles, mustard, grasses are VERY tall. I'm expecting there to be terrible fire storms come the end of summer. But the sky was blue, the wind was blowing off the ocean and it was really quite a nice day.
Here's the a picture of what Laina looked like for the last 15 minutes of our hike. She had lunch in her belly and the rhytmic walking along of Jorg's hiking lulled her to sleep. We put a little sweater under her head for a pillow and she slept.
In the evening she stayed with Grandma and Grandpa while Jorg and I went to the movies. It was the first time since March or something like that that we had gone out the movies! I guess living near Grandparents does have benefits!
