 2 year old twins first 14er  

Well my daughters finally got to see what their parents are always doing when they get a babysitter for them. My husband and I decided for our Anniversary we would take the girls up a 14er. My girls have been in backpacks from the day they were born, but never up a 14er. For father‘s day we attempted Bierstadt, but some man told us that our childs brain could swell. I turned around because I felt guilty by continuing on if something did happen. I did a lot of research and felt comfortable taking them up a 14er.
Getting ready at the car!


Here they are on their first 14er! Hopefully they will enjoy climbing as much as their parents!

Here is a picture of the crowds going up Grays!
Thanks to everyone on the trail! Everyone was so nice! The girls had a great day and they love hiking! Happy trails!

That is awesome!!! And here I am worrying if my 12 year old is going to like Grays/Torreys in a couple of weeks. Congrats on including your kids in what will hopefully develop into a great family activity!!!
