Ok as you can see, Shayne didn't exactly climb up the hill all by himself, he got some help from his Papa. Haha. He didn't complain much and persevered till the end, until we reach the summit! Hikers who walked past us were either stunned or surprised by him. He was the youngest hiker climbing up the hill and I'm proud to say that he is a great hiker; lots of stamina and perseverance from our little boy. I'm a proud mama of an amazing little trooper!
The hike was completed in about 3 hours and we were all so sweaty after the hike. Shayne's shoes were so dirty at the end of our hike (as seen here), and Papa actually wore slippers. Nonetheless we had a great time and it's really a great inexpensive family outing!
We brought our boy to the hill because we wanted to show our boy that our country isn't just filled with tall buildings, shopping malls, and other urbanised buildings. So many parents only bring their children to shopping malls or restaurants during family outings, and spend so much money! We didn't want to be those type of parents. We wanted, and still want, to show Shayne that there's more to life than skyscrapers and other man-made structures. Hopefully he'll also learn to appreciate Mother Earth more after looking at all the beautiful trees, leaves and green scenery.
Till then, :)
