Redwood Regional Park Trail Walk

We want Arianna to enjoy being out in nature as much as we do, and today, we took her on a trail walk in Redwood Regional Park.

We did a more rigorous hike there once before and loved it. The great thing about the place is that you can do an easy walk like we did today, or a challenging hike with lots of elevation changes, but either way, it's a gorgeous place and you really feel surrounded by nature. There are people, but not enough to make it feel crowded.

Arianna was excited to see all the people, dogs, birds, trees, and even a cat. The first thing she did when we put her down to walk around and explore was to bend down and pick up a stick. There were lots of them and she would have inspected each one if we'd let her, so maybe she'll be a nature girl after all!

She's just started to get comfortable with walking and had a bit of trouble negotiating the slight incline of the trail. We couldn't help but chuckle as she tumbled forward a few times. Unfortunately, she got a bump on the head, but she shook it off and kept going like the tough girl she is.

Reservoir Walk - Fall Colors

We went for a walk around Lafayette Reservoir to enjoy the beautiful day outside.

I carried Arianna half way around the reservoir on my back, then she decided to make us proud by walking for a while on her own.

Ari had fun playing in the leaves; I think she likes the Fall as much as her parents!
