How To Go Climbing with Kids

Totally irresponsible and shameless, but here are Caroline and I pacified by Animal Crackers as Dad goes off to scramble on and photograph the Fish Face crag. We are by a pool of water, but rocks ringing the pool are keeping us safely away from the treacherous currents of the Potomac River (Dad hopes).

Note to Dad-- carrying an 18-month-old girl in your arm as you downclimb Class 3 and 4 spots to reach the river, especially when she is screaming to be let loose and do the climbing herself, does not seem fun.

Re: Mmmmm...

He's not big on sharing, so good luck!

Whoever invented Animal Crackers was a genius, though.

Re: Sounds like a real

If one is, keep it secret. I don't need a certain person around here stealing crackers from my kids.

Re: I....

It's too bad that kid crack isn't in vegetables!

Re: Nice

Well, it was missing a nice cabernet, but it was otherwise sublime. Cheers!

Re: Nice

That´s the problem, next time you look after the drink and the kids ca look after the food!
Take care.
