So that you know what I'm working with here, this is Eddie on his first birthday. The poor thing didn't get any presents or a cake, but he did get his favorite thing: a hike up a very long hill and a treat at the top! We even made stops for belly rubs from strangers! Woohoo!
He did get a pretty snazzy birthday hat:
|Family picture pre-hike|
|Baby dog picture on our way across the bridge|
|The whole family got to the top of the mountain!|
We had an ulterior motive for this hike as well: we're thinking about hiking Mt. Fuji next year. It's time to get these hiking muscles into shape!
