While Grandma and Grandpa were here this week we decided to take a day trip to Mt. Charleston. Curtis moaned and groaned about having to go somewhere that takes forever to get to (40 minutes) but in the end I think they all had a great time.
It was about 20 degrees cooler up in the Mountains. It felt Heavenly.
We enjoyed a nice picnic lunch, the kids then played football and collected sticks and logs to make a habitat. We went on a little hike that was met with a lot of complaining from some boys (mainly Curtis) who kept wanting to collect every log and stick along the way but were also to tired to keep walking.
After our hike we just sat around and talked in the nice mountain air. It was fun to be able to let the kids run and explore. Having them couped up in the summer because it is so hot is not easy for any of us. It really was just so nice. I am so glad we could show Grandma and Grandpa a cooler and fun place near our home.
