Simple Adventures = Great Fun

We have been on the go all summer long and honestly it was starting to feel like we lived out of our van! This week we are taking a much needed week at home to relax and get caught up on the mountain of laundry our adventures have created.

For the first time all summer, today I heard the dreaded “I’m bored” from my 5 yr old. Option one was for me to come back with an “Oh really?” followed by some sarcastic comment. Option two was to go do something. So we hopped on our bikes and headed out with no destination in mind. Each kid took turns leading and we wove through the streets in our neighborhood stopping at different parks, exploring forests and finally stopping at the local pizza store for lunch. We had so much fun and the kids want to do it again tomorrow.

It’s the simple things that kids love and today proved that fun doesn’t have to cost a lot of money and be planned out! Just go with the flow and let them lead the way!
