The kids and I spent Saturday morning with some of our really good friends, the Ostranders, on the BEAUTIFUL Palmetto Trail. The kids had lots of fun picking up sticks, ladybugs, and of course, we took our time getting across the 'big bridge' (which is an old converted train trestle).
After snack time, they spent 30 min or so throwing rocks off of the 'big bridge', which gave us Moms a nice quiet chat time (which as moms we don't get too often). The kids loved it and it was nice and quiet so we could let them run ahead or lag behind, at their own paces.
Its great that we have such great outdoor activities nearby! And its even better that we have great friends to share in these outdoor activities with!
