Family "Hiking" (more like a long walk)

We are working on stepping away from the many screens in our life (T.V., computer, i-pad, i-phone, i-havehaditwithscreens) and venturing into the great outdoors.  Now I consider myself a country girl at heart, except for maybe the bugs, dirt, sand, pollen, sweating and sticky sunscreen.....other than that, just call me "Nature Girl".

The boys are studying the rules (thinking about putting one of these signs up in their bedroom).

Yep, that's "wild animal" poop....any resistance that the boys initially had to being in nature has now disappeared and they think this is pretty much the coolest thing we have ever done together!!!

A little pre-hiking dancing is always in order!!!

Can I get an, "Awwwww....."

So, this is about the point where I headed back to the car.....

....but they survived....phew!!!

Picnic time (do you feel like you're being watched??)....

Some Family Football.....

Yes, even little sister is a fan of football!!!

The dirt is a sure sign that fun was had by all and we will be stepping away from screen time more often!!!

Be Well.
