…but we should have been looking for shoes and a jacket, before we impulsively went looking for love…
Because it wasn’t until we were halfway to the coast that we realized we didn’t have either of those necessary clothing items for Harper on that rainy Northern California Sunday in March.
Luckily his daddy has strong shoulders and his mommy had extra layers to improvise with…
But in the end, our lack of preparedness didn’t matter one bit because, as usual, it all came off anyway…
And I swear, that boy has never run so fast or laughed so hard as he did while scampering in his diaper through the forest on that muddy trail. So I don’t think he suffered one bit, and our mission was accomplished.
