This is a picture of my husband with our two year old daughter on his back. Our 3 year old and 6 month old nieces are in the strollers (he is pushing the 3 year old), and my brother-in-law and 5 year old daughter on her bike were just out of the shot. And the dog, of course!
We were in southwest Florida with my husband’s family.
My husband is wearing a toddler Kinderpack in this photo.
March 12, 2011. Which was incidentally our daughter’s second birthday!
It was a gorgeous morning and we had 3 girls (ages 5, 3, and 2) who needed to get out of the house and get a little exercise. Everyone else was busy or working so my husband, brother-in-law, and I decided to take them, the 6 month old, and the dog, to the park. The park was over 2 miles away, though, so the logistics of getting there were a little tricky. Enter babywearing! My brother-in-law was more comfortable using the two strollers for his girls, so our two year old went up on my back for the walk there and my husband’s back for the walk home. I snapped this picture as we were walking home because I love seeing my husband wear her. He is always a super dad, but wearing a 2 year old while pushing a 3 year old in a stroller and yelling encouraging words to the 5 year old on her bike made him seem especially heroic 🙂
