It is so easy to get stuck inside, turn on the tv for the kids and let the day slip away. I have found however that my boys are happiest when we take a few steps out the door and explore the amazing world around us. Kids usually adapt better than we often times expect them to. My husband is so good at getting us outside and taking us to places that make us feel whole again. This last week we put the bikes in the truck and headed to the mountains. I was sure to come prepared with extra everything and of course we needed it, but the extra laundry was worth the memories we are making as a family. We walked, biked and threw rocks in the river, by the time we got home the boys were ready for bed and they have been talking about our adventure ever since. Kids need to get outside, they need to get dirty and wet and tired. They need us to take the time as families to do active things TOGETHER!
