Family fun in the woods
Daylight saving time. Many wonder why it is still observed. The state of Indiana seems to be permanently trapped in a debate over what time it is. With the impending repayment of all those sun-filled moments due this past Saturday night my family made certain that we filled the 1639 minutes that made up our weekend with all the family fun we could.
S'ghetti girl was on the look out for quartz rocks.
Saturday didn't dawn quite as warm as we had hoped so our plans to climb Old Rag were derailed in favor of a closer to home adventure. We headed to Preddy Creek Park. This park has a nice little trail system which is very kid friendly. I was able to get in some trail miles and then meet up with the family as the explored the area. It was a great way to get the whole family outside.
Back at the house there were a few chores waiting for us but with everyone helping out the work went quickly and no one complained. The super secret spy had gotten a half dozen magnolia trees that needed planted. It was a nice start to the small forest I want to create.
Although we had to give back that hour of moments this weekend we didn't feel short changed at all. It doesn't have to be about how much time you spend together. It should be about how you fill those moments that really counts.
And a rich indulgent brownie at the end of a great day doesn't hurt either.
