Sunol Hike - Cooper's First "Official" Swim


Our "goofy goober" <3

 Reuben took the pups on a hike at Sunol today (I'm so jealous) and they had a blast! Cooper has always been interested in water and he fell in accidentally on our last Sunol trip, so he had to swim to get out. I didn't count that as his first swim because it was by accident. Well, today Cooper took the plunge (quite literally) and jumped into the creek after his big sister for a swim!



They stopped at Little Yosemite for some rock climbing and more fun playing in the creek. We are both loving the Ruffwear backpack we purchased for Riley. It's great for her to be able to carry her own water and it's also been strengthening her leg muscles as it holds about 2 bottles of water.

Yummy creek water!
Looking through the pictures Reuben sent me brought a tear to my eye today. It fills me with so much joy to see my pups running free in nature exploring and enjoying all the wonderful smells and sounds!



They are such mountain goats on these tiny trails!

Race to daddy!

The "end" ;)
