Hiking with eight kids

Combined, my friend Kelly and I have eight kids aged eight and under. A couple of weeks ago we went on a hike nearby. It is supposed to be a pretty flat loop, a little over a mile long. When we were about .8 miles in, we came to a "trail closed" sign. So what were we to do with our eight kids who were all growing hot and tired? We forged on down the closed path to soon find that there was a bridge down. Thankfully there were branches and rocks that made enough of a rough path across so we adventured on. It made for a very memorable hike!

I love days like this when the kids wander and explore nature. And I love that I get to chat with my friend while taking in fresh air.
