This past weekend we thought we would celebrate Turner turning 7 MONTHS OLD by going on his first real hiking/camping trip. He went on his first hike when we were in Hawaii, but this was his first real overnight trip. Jesse and I have been aching to get into the woods, so once Turner's pack finally came in the mail, we immediately made plans for the weekend. Jesse searched for a good place for us to go... for our first trip out, we wanted somewhere relatively close, with good trails, and a campground. We ended up going to Catoctin Mountain Park in Maryland, just an hour and a half away. Fun fact: it is actually where Camp David is located. It was beautiful and the weather was perfect during the day. The night was cold and neither Turner nor I slept very well, but overall it was a great trip! It was very nice to get away from the city and spend some time in the great outdoors.
This is the only picture we have of the 3 of us with Turner in the pack... not good of any of us, but that's what you get when you give an old stranger the iPhone.
