As I had to work the last two beautiful days, I spent all day today trying to pack in as much enjoy the weather time as possible. To start off our day, the kids and I packed a lunch and went to the Metropark (Free entry day!!) and enjoyed some hiking thru the nature trails finishing off our journey at the nature center. The kids loved it and did a wonderful job hiking. Colby has a fascination with bird watching and there was quite a few on our journey. We also had the opportunity to drive around the park and check stuff out for later. The water park alone will be worth the annual pass! As well as the nice bike run, swimming area, numerous playgrounds and of course continuing our nature hiking. After the nature center, we headed home for a quick nap and then off to McDonald's and the cottage to enjoy the lake. While at the lake, the kids tried to convince me that swimming was a good idea. Brrrrr!!! Instead we settled on canoeing. Colby got a cushion and sat in the middle and I gave Mason a paddle to well... apparently not paddle with, what was I thinking! =) All in all, it was a good trip. We canoed to Zuckey Lake and back before packing stuff up and heading towards home. To make our "summer" day complete, we stopped for ice cream on the way.
Being the wonderful well prepared mother that I am... I forgot the camera. =( So sad for all of us as there were some super cute moments. I'll see if I can't get Kevin to photoshop something up for ya'll between overtime shifts though. Because, I love you all that much. =)
