Cowles Mountain Take 2

Well last year in the summer we decided to try and climb Cowles Mountain. It did not go well! I was 5 and a half months pregnant and about had a heat stroke! Yah, we didn't make it all the way to the top. We decided to try it again, this time with a little better planning but also a baby. Instead of doing it in the afternoon on a day when it was in the 90's we tried to go earlier and on a cooler day. We also decided to go a shorter route that is 2 miles instead of the long way. Unfortunately on our 2nd attempt we still did not make it! So sad, I know! But we left a little late and it did end up getting hot on the mountain and there's absolutely no shade on the hike and we got worried that it was just getting to hot for Afton and she doesn't really fit well in the baby carrier yet... yada yada yada. So we're planning it again.... because before we leave this place(San Diego), we WILL conquer Cowles Mountain!

Turning around and heading home! Nice try!

Sportin the spandex!

The beginning of the trail starts at this park by our house so we decided to just hang out at the park in the shade and eat our lunches and snacks we had packed. It turned into and nice little picnic.

When we got home we decided to give Afton solids for the first time.... She LOVED it... or not.

We all know Logan was the one who got hot and wanted to go home.

Congrats on this new phase of solid food Afton... Have fun being silly with different textures and making a mess.
