Climbing (The) Mountain

Climbing mountains is (the) biggest hobby (of) my young time, I (in the) past often climb (the) mountains, but (in the) time (that is) after (I) had (a) son (in) year (20)13, (I do) not have that much time to climb (the) mountains (anymore).

Today is (my) son(’s) 7-year-old birthday, (he) is (a) big kid (now). I (for) the first time took (my) son to climb (the) mountain, to pass(/celebrate) (the) birthday for him.

(At) morning 6 o’clock, we took (a) boat to go-across (the) river (and) came “arriving”(/to) (at the) underneath (of the) mountain, (and) started to go-up (the) mountain.

(There was) wind being blowing (on the) mountain-surface, “reaching the evaluation of” “a little bit” cold, but we could see (the) blue sky, (and the) white clouds, additionally (we) could hear little birds singing songs for us. Me and (my) son both climbed especially happy. (I had) not thought of, (that my) son(,) at home going-up (the) building(,) was used to taking (the) elevators, (but) after (having) arrived (the) mountain-inside, (he) climbed even faster than me. (It) still (had) not arrived noon, we already climbed “arriving”(/to) the highest place (already). I told (my) son, (during) time (of) climbing mountains, coming up (was) not difficult, (but) going down (was) difficult, so we(,) before going down(,) needed to eat “a little bit” (of) stuff. I (-) “disposing of” (the) bread (that) I brought over (-) gave to (my) son, (and) said, “Though this is not (a) birthday cake, but today (your)-dad(/I) (am) especially happy (that I) can “pass”(/celebrate) your 7-year-old birthday (like) this for you.” (My) son listened (and) smiled, (and) said (that) this “ge” (of) birthday (-) he “passed” especially happy.
