When you have 3 young kids, there are a lot of moments that aren't magical, sweet, or memorable. There's a lot of fighting over toys, yelling, trying to convince little people to eat or clean up after themselves, or begging them to sleep. But occasionally you do get to simply enjoy a morning together being adventurous and playful. That's what this morning was. It was a really beautiful time for the 5 of us to go exploring as a family.
We climbed rocks, walked along the river, threw rocks in the water, hiked to a railroad as a train was coming over a bridge and got to wave at the conductor, and picked wild flowers.
