How Could I Forget How Awesome This Is??

*Day off in Big Bear:  another awesome mountain town*

We're still hangin' with Scott and Jason.  The boys have been fine company and have been keeping us motivated and smiling.  Together, we've enjoying (and working VERY hard) with some longer days and longer mileage than we expected early in this trip.  Jason is blogging - http://jasonreamy.blogspot.com/

It's all good!  Epic scenery, fun company and some Racoon Shenanigans have been the highlights of this section.  From desert to Mountain to desert to Mountain has been the theme as well with huge elevation changes.  Keith has been a superstar and has been having a good time (did I mention working hard?!?) and is sleeping like a baby while I toss and turn all night while we "cowboy camp" and sleep on our tarp under the stars.

Scott with his Hiker breakfast in Big Bear.  Oh yeah.  It's the little things that make you smile.

We are supposed to be hitchhiking here.  It didn't work.  Instead I got on the phone and called a Trail Angel who came and picked up 6 OF US SMELLY DIRTY-ASS HIKERS and took us direct to Sizzler for a mid-afternoon Sizzler Salad Bar Bender.  Oh yeah.


The desert is Astounding.


Jason and Keith enjoying some trail magic.  Cold soda's on the trail!  (this post is beginning to sound heavily food orientated...)


This section of trail has been particularly astounding because of it's diversity.  We went from 9,000 feet on Mount San Jacinto, to the Palm Desert at 1,000 feet.  Then we regained all of the elevation to Mount San Gorgonio at 8,000 feet.  Note:  the desert is NOT flat.  But it is sooooo Amazing.  The descent down to the Palm Desert was hard, hard work (12 miles of descending) to the bottom of the desert floor where it was 100F.  Wow.



A little perspective.  Keith and Mount San Jacinto.


We saw the Sunrise.


And the sunset!!




And then there was fragrant high alpine forests with amazing trees!




There are some crazy things growing in these mountains.


We are enjoying a well earned day off, feet up and relaxin'.  I've been to Big Bear 3 times in my life, and love this town.  Real people.

Next up:  3 days to Cajon pass.  We're feeling rested and ready.  It's a whole new hike for me:  the scenery feels and looks completely different, there are people and socializing on the trail (shocking for someone who spent 104 days hiking by herself) and we're loving it.

Your child will play with the friv games, then eat. Let your child touch the food, help him to play with the food. Allow him to take his fingers to his mouth. So eating, eating, eating should be as enjoyable as playing a game. Small colored plates, heart-shaped breakfast plates, prepared lunches such as picnicking, dinner prepared like playing house, can be transformed into a pleasurable event made with family.

It seems difficult for mothers and fathers to give their children food in front of television. Instead they need to turn off the television. Friv needs to find solutions that will increase interest and desire. For example, funny facial shapes, simple games such as airplane flying, eating games for toddlers, interesting and entertaining to eat contribute to your child's movement and cognitive development. When your child is hungry, he can feel grumpy and cry without any reason. Most of the time, these reactions are outdoors. It is necessary to evaluate this reaction well and encourage the child to eat.

Can children who do not eat food add a habit of eating with the game?
Of course, the game at friv 2 is very important for the development of a child. However, the game should be applied up to 2 years of age. The game can be cooked until 2 years of age, after which the game is not suitable for eating and eating habits. Because we can apply certain rules, we have to give this habit to the child from their early ages. It is an important role model for the child to eat together with the family, to sit in the table together. Even if you have not eaten your food, sitting in the family cafeteria is important for the development of the child.
It is best not to make your meal times boring. This is also very important in terms of communication with children. A child who does not eat will want to have a loud tone and different and abrasive expressions will be used. I think it is also important in terms of food.
You can make your child's dinner sessions more engaging at some point. But do not take it to the point of a child who opens your mouth like a robot in every advertising cycle, sitting in front of friv unblocked video-recorded a
