Walk, Swat and Run

It is funny how the family outings you remember are the ones that go awry. We decided to get out of the city and enjoy a picnic and a hike at Kettle Morraine Park. We found a trail head that was virtually unoccupied. We enjoyed our sandwiches and Cheetos while we watched the sky, hoping it would not rain on us. Once finished we decided to take a 1.5 mile walk. We put Charlotte in her Baby Bundler, grabbed the water bottle and headed down the trail. We had not been walking for long when we noticed the heavy mosquito population! Jason and I consulted that we should continue on, surely the path would get sunny and there would be no mosquitoes. So we encouraged the kids to run to avoid being carried off. Well we ran the 1.5 miles as Jason and I tried to keep thinking positive that just around the corner it will get better. The kids cried and whined, but they jogged the whole way and we made it out with minimal damage. (Charlotte had none).
