my spring & summer is about to get real crazy. i don't have a free weekend in april or may & it's all engagement shoots & weddings from here on out. last weekend was the last weekend for us to have all to ourselves for quite a while which meant i was itching to do something with it. unfortunately it was pouring & our choices were limited... so i thought. then out of nowhere sam proposed lunch & a hike in a nearby state park. within half an hour we had a lunch packed, friends to meet up with (sam's sister & her husband) & we were on our way to an adventure.
the whole thing was so much fun, even in the mud & rain. sam & jason managed to get a fire going to roast hot dogs & we ate cookies & donuts & some other snacks. the only thing we were missing were s'mores, how did we forget the s'mores?? anywho, we put out the fire & headed out on a little hike where sam & i decided we needed to do this a whole lot more. parker was in heaven finding & counting worms. we had to push elliot through his nap but he had a blast digging in the dirt & throwing rocks in the bushes.
i'm super excited for this summer, even with all the busy-ness. these older two are such a blast to take out & about & watch discover the world around them. have i mentioned i love this stage of toddler/kid-hood? it's the bees knees.
