the good life

That's our state slogan you know, "The Good Life" and we put that to the test this week on our little family vacation. We packed our car to the absolute hilt then headed out to Platte River State Park for three days of fishing, hiking, bike riding, swimming, horseback riding (oops - changed our minds on that one), and general downtime.
Turns out 6 and a half years old is a perfect age for these activities. 2 and a half, however, struggled a little bit more. If we somehow could have coaxed him into just one nap during the trip we might have fared better. Oh well. I'm 100% positive that everyone had a good time so that's all that matters in the end.
My favorite part of the trip were the hikes. We even made a friend or two along the way...

Oh, I almost forgot...
We couldn't leave without a trip down the road from our cabin to the craft center. I made a leather bracelet and felt like I was ten years old again, it was awesome.
So now it's time to unpack, do a million loads of laundry and start thinking about school starting in a couple of weeks! Holy smokes, folks!

Niiiiice :). Sure gives me the itch to go camping, but October is better weather for that for us.

When our son was younger, he'd throw in his fishing hook a couple times then be ready to go climb rocks or otherwise putter around LOL. Now, at 12, he's far more patient :).
