Last weekend we headed down to our old stomping grounds. Our cousin had won a ride on a fire trip and invited us to join in! As always, the kids made it hard to get a pic of all three :-)
Last but not least James and I are busy planning our upcoming summer. Our yard needs quite a bit of TLC to make it the yard we want so we are *trying* to commit to spending more of our weekends working on it instead of camping *sniff*. To balance it out, our hope is to spend one day working in the yard and one day doing a day trip or local adventure. This weekend's trip was an adventure to the hot springs! I've been underwhelmed by the swim lessons the kids have taken and overwhelmed by the cost. We decided what might help them the most for right now is just more time in the pool and water instead of 30 minute sessions of taking turns waiting for drills, so we snagged some punch cards with the plan of hitting the pool hard in May so that by the time the lakes and rivers warm up the kids are far more confident in and around water. So far, so good. The kids had a blast and James and I got a nice warm soak after a day of hauling pavers and rocks. Hopefully after a lot more time just playing, exploring and practicing with James and I we'll be ready to tackle lessons again.
