Fun family day

We're lucky in California. It was 80 degrees last weekend. My husband and I decided to take the twins for a hike along the coast. At 23 lbs, Drake is getting too heavy for the Baby Bjorn front carrier (at least for me to carry him in it) and his legs are so long that they hit your thighs when you walk. A friend had passed down a Kelty backpack baby carrier that we hadn't used yet. I wasn't sure Drake would be stable enough in it, but we decided to give it a try. He did great in it! And not only that, he loved it! He was laughing with each bounce of my husband's steps. His head control is pretty good now, so he could handle the bouncing. And I felt that it was good strength training for his upper back, as the pack kind of tipped him forward and he was holding his head up straight to see everything. It was a fun day for the whole family.
