I'm amazed at how far Corinne's boys will walk. Wilfred gathers sticks and stones as he goes. Obi walked over 3 miles last time they came to visit. We went to an area of The New Forest called Pig Bush. Corinne and I walked back with Wilfred and Arthur because Wilfred was soaking, having been up to his knees in water. Things got worse when I had to pull him out of a waist deep muddy puddle. Meanwhile my husband and son in law took Obi on our usual long walk...and he didn't complain once!Sherry1 said:They are adorable but when I see Arthur I just want to scoop him up and hug him!
My son and DIL are great hikers and enjoy the outdoors. The kids have not slowed them down one bit.
It certainly is!cathyknits said:I remember your muddy boy picture! So cute!
Corrine does a wonderful blog - it's nice to see the kids.
I have cousins in Newfoundland who are bringing up their kids in a similar fashion - lots of countryside time. Everyone in the family hikes and climbs, from the 2 year old to the grandparents. It's a great way to grow up.
I agree, they always look happy. :thumbup: :thumbup:AngieR said:Corinne is doing such a lovely job of raising her boys. They always have big, heartfelt smiles on their faces. Thanks for sharing.
