We had a fun Memorial Day this year! A town near us, about 15 minutes away, always has a parade every year that ends with the dedication at the war monument in town. We skipped that this year though and packed up the kiddos and ourselves and headed out on a little adventure of our own.
After a few snags (Hubs had an anxiety attack on the drive and we stopped at the E.R. to have him checked out real quick...clean bill of health!), we ended up in a small but cute little town a couple hours away. Our arrival there started with a visit with this little guy:
We ended up at a picnic area that my husband went to a lot as a child. We took some hot dogs and snacks and our little gas grill, and of course we couldn't forget the twins bathing suits! It was an extremely hot but beautiful day, and there's a little creek that runs by the picnic area, perfect for the kids to splash in. We changed the kids and let them dip in the water.
Connor got a toe in the water, and freaked out. That was enough for him! He was happy as a clam though, playing with the rocks and the sand near the water. :-)
