Of the camping trip except the 3 mile hike in. Now they keep asking me "when are we going hiking again", every month since last July.
I have been getting them involved in it all too. And luckily they like they hike part but I think it stems from mom and dad workout 6 days a week and I guess to them that is a fitness thing that they have to do as a part of life. Because 7 miles in 3.5 hours is pretty good for their little legs lol. And they don't complain about it.
