Our Ergo and backpack came in the mail on Friday. Abbie seriously loves the thing, almost as much as we do. So far, I’ve worn her on 2 walks around the neighborhood and in the grocery store, and Mark wore her on our hike in the White Tanks. As you can see, she does love the thing, and it is VERY comfortable to wear. Since the waistband is wide and padded, most of her weight is on your hips. It basically feels like you’re wearing a book bag, although I remember my book bag in college being much heavier and a lot less comfortable.
The hike in the White Tanks was beautiful. I wish we had bought a season pass to this park now. It’s about 15-20 mins from our house. We did the Waterfall Canyon trail this time, which is only a mile or so long, but as you can see, beautiful. We figured (along with LOTS of other people) we’d check out the waterfall since we’ve had so much
rain here lately. You had to climb way back in the canyon to see the waterfall, or tip-toe across a few scattered rocks, neither of which we were willing to do with Abbie with us.
(I really need a hood for my camera. Then you wouldn’t see my hand blocking the sunlight….)
Abbie really enjoys people watching.
Apparently the thing is comfortable too because Abs fell asleep on the way back. The Ergo has a sleep hood on it though so we just put that up and it prevented her head from bouncing around. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time hiking with our little one.
