We decided, somewhat last minute, to pack the camper and head for the lake. We needed to step outside the house projects and pour into our little people. We played at the park multiple times, rode our bikes to the lakeside, and found some perfect hiking/biking trails. The kids (parents too) were stoked to find a place that we can see ourselves enjoying on a regular basis. The little girls sat in the bike trailer and sucked their fingers while the big kids sped away leaving Mark and myself yelling, "slow down," over and over.
We came home the next day and took long naps (Mark worked on the house- no nap), ate steak, and hit the bed early.
