We enjoyed lots of fishing and swimming (well, more like splashing) in the lake.
We went exploring on several nature hikes together.
We had to visit the local drive-thru zoo and feed the animals. It isn't very frugal, but it was definitely a highlight of our trip! Emily was a bit stingy with the food at first.
This fellow was a bit more friendly!
We spent some time picking the clover flowers.
....and Clara turned 2 right before our very eyes!
We stopped by Big Spy Mountain's Overlook....
....and caught lots of breath-taking sunsets!!
...and every night ended with a special story time of passages from Shel Silverstein's Falling Up.
It was a lovely trip, and now it's great to be back! This week we'll be sharing some fun ideas for the garden, a cute nature craft, tips for frugal picnics, and a super-fun giveaway! You won't want to miss it!!
