For the Stewart Family Reunion during the 4th of July weekend we went on a hike to Iron Bog Lake. We had a picnic in the parking lot on a giant rock and then began our hike.
We climbed the hike with only a few cries from Talvyn of being bored, tired, sore, etc. On the way up to the lake, he wanted to go home because he had to use the bathroom. We finally convinced him to use the great outdoors. When we finally got to the lake, we played for a while and then decided to hike around it. We had to cross over a log at one point and were covered by some strange sort of bug at another point. Talvyn fell into a hole and soaked his leg clear up to his thigh. Talvyn can't handle wet clothing! He quickly decided that he had enough of the outdoors and stormed off, crying, down the mountain ready to go back to the cars (over a mile away) all by himself because he couldn't stand being wet. We chased him down and headed back to the vehicles with him. Daxtyn fell asleep on the hike down and at a couple of points both boys had to be carried. It was a tough hike with small children, but it was beautiful.
