Fall Break Fun

This weekend my husband took my 2 boys for an overnight camp trip. They hiked 4 miles in to their campsite and set up camp and then hiked 4 miles back out in the morning. Not bad for a 5 and 7 year old. My oldest is a trooper and always up for an adventure. Cold, pain, fatigue generally doesn't bother him he just keeps going without a complaint. Now my 5 year old feels those discomforts a bit more and is also very good at sharing how he is feeling. He did get tired yesterday as they were doing mile 3. They had a great time and will defiantly do it again in the spring. I am so thankful to have a husband who will spend time with my boys doing what boys are meant to do and enjoy the outdoors.

Just getting started

Entering into a cave
A little rock climbing

They came home and told me they could write with sticks and smoke
Resting tired feet
A beautiful waterfall and notice the "mist" rainbow
Corinne and I stayed home while they camped. We got to play a number of rounds of candy land, go fish, paint nails and toes, watch cinderella, and sleep in mom's bed.
