We took Ezra on his first walk Tuesday. We just committed to the short walk we take Piper on every morning. What normally is a ten minute walk took us 2-1/2 hours including the time it took to get ready, and how (not) quickly the still recovering Amanda was able to walk. Piper was super excited for Ezra to join us and enjoyed the walk regardless of how slow it was.
Friday, we decided to follow the success of the walk with Ezra's first trip in the car. We needed a few groceries so planned to go to the store, a 15 minute car ride. We started getting Ezra, the car seat, and ourselves ready around 1 pm. By 4:00 pm we felt defeated and exhausted, and decided to never leave the house again. After a one hour nap we were rejuvenated. We finally made it to the grocery around 8:30 pm.
