Look who can climb rocks, stay in her gym clothes all day and have huge biceps at the same time…this girl.
Okay, it was more like….’crap, BILLY how the heck are we going to get down from this thing…..HOLD ME!!!’
The mother in law took us on a nature hike. Along the way there was SIXTEEN markers where we would stop and she would read from the pamphlet about tree’s, how to find water, build a shelter and how snakes build their nests.
We were the only family with no one under the age of 8. My MIL is a pre-school teacher, I kept wondering if she was just testing her next field trip on us since our maturity levels are probably about the same.
We had a rule on our nature hike, you were not allowed to look at the ground because then you might miss an eagle or a flower….good thing I almost re-broke my femurs 4 times due to tripping over rocks.
Okay, it was actually A LOT of fun and I hate to admit that I really did learn a lot. My family NEVER did outdoorsy natury things growing up (I clearly never learned how to spell) and so I am CLUELESS to anything nature unless it has to do with how to trail run or cooking s’mores over a fire.
The grandparents outdid themselves once again and cooked up the best shish kibobs I have ever had. Melon rocks my world, that is all I have to say. The glaze for the shish kabobs was orange juice, soy sauce, garlic and butter. Cook it in a sauce pan before marinating.
And the grand finale……….
That would be strawberry shortcake with HOMEMADE whipped cream and strawberries. Why does taking a beautiful photo of dessert make me so happy….it is a little strange!
A sugar coma did occur while watching HOUSE HUNTERS!!! I think Billy’s shortcake could have eaten him. Good thing he ran 5 SPEEDY MILES and ran sprints that made my BIL who runs a 5:32 mile loose all of his stomach contents.
Early bed time tonight because we are waking up EARLY to go MOUNTAIN BIKING!!! Taking a ski-lift up the mountain and biking down= a workout right?
Growing up did you and your family do outdoorsy things like hiking, camping, boating etc?!?
