photo of jude and zachary at audubon center

Jude dragged us to a nearby Audubon Center today.  It was early, cold and wet but we were all good sports.  We brought along our Osprey hiking backpack for Z but he didn’t even need it.  I feel like he’s turned a corner with hiking and wants to do it all on his own instead of going along for the ride.  Jason wore it empty all morning.  I’m sure we will still use it on the road on more dangerous hikes, but it’s nice to have him tackling some hikes on his own!  He’s getting so big!
