deep conversations

Cody, TayTay and I hiked from Aspen Grove to Stewart Falls the other day. I was impressed that Cody made it without too much prodding, maybe it was all the talking he did that kept his mind off the hike. Here is what we talked about non-stop except for a few one minute "talking breaks" I implemented. Each of these topics what discussed IN DEPTH.

-Gravity, and how it helps us not fall off the earth
-How rocks are made
-Where waterfalls come from
-Why waterfalls don't turn off
-Whether the orange bird that lost a feather looks cool or pretty
-What if we see an orange bird but it's not the bird that lost the feather
-What sound trees make when they fall
-What sound bushes make when they fall
-Why squirrels are not scary
-Why stumps sometimes looks like bears from far away
-Why it's not snowing because mom said it would snow when the leaves changed colors
-Why someone spray painted a picture of a ladder on a watershed instead of putting up a real ladder
-Why leaves smell when they are dying
-What makes trees die
-Why we can't drive to the top of a mountain
-Why it's windy when you stick your head out of the sun roof, but not windy when the car stops
-Why when you hike down a hill it makes you run
-Why does mom like to make kids hike?
-Do I like bees and why?
-Why doesn't TayTay have to walk? Not fair!

Afterwards we got a cookie at Sundance. I was exhausted - but I don't think it was from the hiking. I love you Cody!
