The bests things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been, and the memories we’ve made along the way ~ Anonymous
“As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing.” ~ John Muir
As a kid, I had so much fun spending time outdoors with my family – traveling, camping, and hiking. I hope my grandson will look back on this time with fondness and remember hearing the waterfall sing.
Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experiences. ~ Paulo Coelho
Spending the day at the Jackson County Fair in Central Point, OR. The kids loved holding the gator……my daughter looks a little worried. My brave babies.
“Rivers know this: There is no hurry. We shall get there some day” ~ A.A. Milne
We were on our way to the coast and stopped for lunch and a dip in the Smith River at Jedediah Smith State Park. Kids are like rivers….they’re in no hurry.
Smell the sea and feel the sky, let your soul and spirit fly ~ Van Morrison
Letting their spirits fly……dodging the waves in Brookings, Oregon. Remember when kids didn’t need anything but nature and a few friends to have the best time? Good times.
My youngest grandson experiencing the ocean for the first time ~ he was so fascinated with chasing the waves and playing in the sand. In nature, life can be so sweet and simple.
“It’s a party. It’s a celebration of another year of life..” ~ Kim Etheredge
Celebrating my youngest grandsons 3rd birthday with Mama, Big Sister, and cousins. That blonde hair and baby blues sure run in the family. Who needs Chuck E. Cheese when you can spend the day at the park with family.
“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard….” ~ Winnie-the-Pooh
It had been two and a half years since I saw my girl and grand-kids; I’m so grateful to have the means to spend time with them. Although, I love exploring nature and experiencing the beauty of the outdoors….. nothing can take the place of spending time with my family. It was hard to say goodbye.
