Mini adventures don't have to be far from home, do they? Last Sunday we went to a local state park and, while we didn't do any hiking, it helped me to feel more like our old selves. Nate practiced his banjo, I read a book, and Ries pretended to be excited about the dog swimming area, but never actually went swimming. Being the easy-going girl that she is, Louisa hung just hung out. Summer is so nice.
