Hiking with a baby

I’ve been wanting to go on a hike for a while now, but its a bit trickier with a baby… or is it? We went to quarry rock in North Vancouver to trial run hiking with a baby. Check out how baby did!
Thanks for watching and we hope this, if anything, at least inspires you to check out some hikes around you.

[Dad] Don’t sweat it

I haven’t written anything for a while so I thought I would write a little bit about exercise and how that fits into our lives as new parents.

In short, it doesn’t.  

My wife and I have recently changed our definition of exercise

Arm day –> holding baby

Leg day –> picking something off the floor while holding baby

Cardio –> going up and down the stairs to change baby/get things while holding baby

But honestly, our days at the gym have diminished. My wife is gracious enough to let me go a couple of days when I’m off but her gym days are now nonexistent.

Our only opportunity for exercise seems to be going on walks, which was great during fall. Unfortunately, this winter has been colder than usual and we just do not want to risk baby’s health just to go for walks. So, where do we go?

Maybe we just have to get more creative, but I don’t know of other indoor areas where we could walk around for a couple of hours.

The mall is filled with strollers during the day, especially during the winter, so I’m sure that we’re not the only ones who could benefit from other indoor places.

We’re running out of malls to go to.

Hopefully we can figure out a better method of fitting some activity into our lives…
