Weight of the Grandchild

It was another warm night. Elizabeth’s mom had a final to take on line so I offered to take Elizabeth for a walk. When she saw the backpack, she started saying “walk, walk, walk” excitedly. She may not understand that she is really not going for a walk. Grandpa is going for the walk.

We made our way towards Mt. Rubidoux. Tonight was going to be a shorter walk, so we went up the Buena Vista trail on the north east side. Then we went on the road up towards the top in time for the sunset.

We went to area with the flag pole as the area with the cross because of the number of people that congregate there in the evenings. The breeze felt great. The sunset was even better.

We then began the trek home. I was already well on my way down the up-road when I realized that i went the wrong way to make it a short trip. It ended up being a 5 mile trek with an actual walking time of 1.5 hours. One thing is for sure, the weight of a grandchild seems like more as the day goes no.
