In early September, Ryan and I took the kids and Cooper hiking near our house. We had so much fun and the boys loved investigating all the things the woods had to offer. Graycen was too interested in the hike to take her nap, but she had a great time even though she had to be tired. While we did not stray from the trail, Connor and Spencer managed to get themselves covered in those little tiny seed ticks.......well, Spencer only had a few, but I probably picked at least 30 off of Connor with tweezers. He was such a brave little trooper through the process. And Cooper, well we didn't even bother to check him - Ryan gave him a wonderful chemical spa treatment in the dark that night to take care of any little pests he may have brought home. Needless to say, we learned our lesson and will be applying lot's of bug spray the next time we venture into the great outdoors!
