Last week’s highlights

The first week of July was full of lots of sunshine and fun in the outdoors.

We went hiking in one of our favorite spots, Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park, on Monday.  Tucker, of course, insisted I carry him the majority of the time so I got a great workout in.

Tuesday, the fourth of July, we continued our family tradition of hiking and explored Three Creeks Metro Park for the first time.  We ventured done the Bluebell trail, which had moderate terrain, but nothing we couldn’t handle.

Kevin introduced the boys to skipping rocks, which was a huge hit.

The views of Big Walnut Creek were gorgeous!

The rest of the week seemed to fly by, holidays mid-week always seem to make the days go by faster.  We had some evening walks around the neighboorhood, Mikey practiced riding his bike some more and the boys had their first ice cream truck experience, something that totally should have been on our Summer Bucket List.

  2. We’ve been skimming rocks for awhile now. It’s so much fun. Ice cream trucks and summer bucket lists. It all sounds like so much fun.
