My sister called earlier this week to say that they were headed to RR and that Eric’s (her ten-year-old son) friend had backed out and did Jesse want to go with them. I relayed the info to Jesse, who said, "So I’m replacing Eric’s friend? Heck yeah, I’ll go!"
I talked to my sister earlier this morning. She said that Jesse was the best replacement ever! She said that upon arrival Jesse and Eric had hit the ground running. They immediately headed up Mallet Canyon to do some mountain climbing (Jes sent me a phone pic of Eric wading in the creek). Since then they have been fishing, biking, line dancing, and gone to the Playhouse. Today Jesse borrowed a jeep to take them up towards Middle Fork to hike to Wheeler Peak. Being a ten-year-old boy is not a stretch for Jes. Eric is thrilled. I wonder who will give out first.
