We’re a hiking family, and I HAD to share this with my husband. So spot-on! hahahahahaha
Snack break right out of the starting gate made me laugh so hard. Yep! Relate also to the seemingly benign stick battle, lol.
Would add at the exact halfway mark: “One child sits down and refuses to move further while another child declares they need to use the bathroom immediately (despite going to the bathroom 10 minutes ago, or for the older crowd, declaring 10 minutes ago that they definitely did NOT need to use the bathroom).”
Would also add at the exit: “Kids declare it was fun and ask why don’t we take them hiking more often” 😛
