A hiking adventure we will go

Before the rain could dampen the rest of the day, I dragged (almost literally) the boys out for a morning hike through the woods. With snacks, water bottles, and diaper bag in tow, our adventure ended up lasting close to 90 minutes! It was not all walking though. We of course had to stop for a snack on one of the many small bridges. Throwing large rocks that they could barely pick up and toss into the water was a must. And an occasional science lesson on how to tell the age of a tree and the fungal plates on the side of a tree.

Try not to be boring ole mom

Yes, I've begun the blogging entries again! That could mean only one thing: hubby is deployed again. And now that Blogger has an app, I'll be even more tempted to add a few entries for him to read from afar.

Today was the first weekend that it's just me and the boys. After having them in camp all week (thank goodness!), I wanted to be prepared with keeping them busy.

In anticipation of rain all morning, I searched Pinterest for ideas to do on a rainy day. However, when we woke to sunshine that meant Plan B: Get Outside!

We traveled to a nearby waterfront to explore. Along the way, we came across several hidden treasures! A walkway leading to a waterfall, a front-end loader, and a gazebo!

Looks like our first day of the weekend started off pretty good!
