July 2 – Day 50

Every one is preparing for the 4th of July.  Last night  there was a lot of noise – fire crackers, rockets going off in the neighborhood.  Carwyn was great. He ignored most of it except for a couple of really loud booms.  He lifted his head and gave me a look that said “What the heck was that?”  and then continued is evening nap.

Today we headed out to Swiss Valley Park.  It is about a 20 minute car ride so we don’t go very often.  It has great trails that wind back and forth across a stream.

Mileage: 1.27 miles
Time: 31 minutes
Temperature: 77° F.

If you haven’t read the Declaration of Independence, you should!


Happy Holidays!



June 29 – Day 48

My son TJ (and Carwyn’s “big brother”) is walking the Pacific Crest Trail this summer.  He should have made it to 800 + miles today (total trail is 2660 miles).  So we dedicate our pitifully short walk to TJ.  Way to go White Rabbit!

Mileage: 1.18 miles
Time: 26 minutes
Temperature 75° F.
