Wow, this is really turning into a fun thread. I'm loving all the outdoor pics of us out with our kids.

@Charlie D: that is bitchin'. A colossal success. You look like you're having SO much fun.

@TG: good to know that fun is getting payed forward in the desert.

@Kali: Who are you? Are you the person who once found a message-board bomb in Refugio Frey? (Greatest practical joke I've ever played.)

@ Plaidman: I remember the story. Excellent that you're still getting 'em outside. :-)

Just got him some new shoes. This may entice him further into the trap.

Great thread Greg! I took both my kids climbing at an early age, but never pushed them. Many years later both of them love the mountains. My son never took to climbing, but my daughter still does it occasionally. Pics are from last summer when we did Moon Goddess together. Best part of that was spending time in the back country with my daughter and getting a chance to catch up on her busy life. I try to do at least one mountain trip a year with each of my kids.

This is what happens when you pack too much stuff in your kids backpack. You end up carrying both of em.
