The Great Outdoors

I really love being outside. I love hiking and camping and exploring. I can't wait until it's warmer and we can get out and enjoy nature!  I'm excited because about a quarter to half a mile from where our new apartment is, is the beginning of a long walking trail that follows a river.  I can't wait to get out there and run on it, or push the stroller, or let the kids ride their bikes, run and explore!

When we lived in Tennessee we weren't too far from the Occoee river, we used to go there almost every weekend when it was warm. We'd hike, or play in the river, or sometimes just sit and watch the people white water rafting. We even camped at one of the campgrounds a few times, it was just a lot of fun!

One thing I know will happen when we have our own land and house is that Eugene will be buying a 4-wheeler, and probably the biggest ATV tires you can find so he can drive it through mud puddles and across rivers and over tree stumps. He always gets jealous when he sees people out riding.  (I'm not going to lie, I like a good atv adventure myself!)

For now though, we'll have to enjoy the warm days at the park or on the walking trail... one day.
