As I mentioned yesterday, this past Saturday our family had a DAY.
We don't often have just a day free to do whatever, so we took advantage of it. First we went to McKinney Falls State Park, which is only about a 20 minute drive from our house. In getting ready to go (packing up snacks, making sure kids are dressed, diapers, etc.), and after turning around to go back home for the camera....
We got to the park and realized our 3 year old was without shoes. Both my husband and I had talked about which shoes she was going to wear, but in the mess of getting ready to leave, it just fell through the cracks. Poor thing had to walk in socks or ride in the stroller that was most certainly not "hiking trail approved."
Arriving at the "flats."
After possibly putting our children's lives at risk (only kind of kidding), we got them up on this rock....you can't see it, but there's a cave underneath this overhang.
The little guy was content in the Kelty...he's always such a trooper.
I was showing my girls how to whistle. It's a talent on which I pride myself. In our family, my kids know to come find me if they hear that whistle, anytime...anywhere. It's come in handy more times than I can count.
Helping their shoeless sister. At least it was smooth rock, bless her heart.
I want him to ride in this thing until he's 5....my husband however might have a weight cutoff. The thing is pretty heavy without a child in it! I've done it once and almost fell over backwards!
