Family walk to the waterfall!
I instinctively want to call this a "hike", but it would be a rather pathetic one, so, lets go with "nature walk". The kids had a great time exploring all of the what if's of the outdoors, for example, "what if a giant bird came down and we could ride it"..." what if a bear came out of that tree?..." and so on. Jayson confused rock climbers with landscapers, each time he climbed a steep hill, he'd say "look mom, its just like landscaping!", I let him say it a good 5 times before I corrected him because it was really cute. Alanah and Ashlynn would go to a look out or climb a post and exclaim to the world that they are the princesses. Nate and I walked hand in hand and optimistically explored our ideal if / then scenarios. It was a perfect time to de-stress and have some much needed QT with the family.
