Easter Adventure

We finally got a break from the rain yesterday. We’ve had nothing but overcast, rainy gloomy days for awhile now and we really needed a break. So, after the kids found their Easter baskets (which I didn’t take a single photo of, I video recorded instead) we packed up our stuff and headed out to Patapsco State Park for a little adventure.

We were going to do a picnic lunch, but by the time we got everything ready to go it was just easier to stop and eat before heading to the park. After lunch, we drove out to the park and then decided we wanted to walk down to the river. We found the white trail down, but for some reason we let Landon lead…so shortly after finding the white trail, we lost it and ended up forging our own path through the woods. We made it down to the river and sat on the rocks and rested for awhile.

Once we were all cooled off, we thought we’d take a walk down the train tracks.

As we were walking and talking about whether or not the tracks were still in use, Zoe, Landon and I heard this faint noise coming from the ground. All of a sudden it dawned on me and I yelled to Tony who was way ahead with Harper to get off the tracks. We all jumped down to the side of the tracks and watched as our question was answered.

Once the train passed, we decided to turn back and find the path back up to the parking lot. It was quite a hike and Harper had had enough and was ready for a nap. It was a nice way to spend a gorgeous afternoon and we got home just in time for another big thunderstorm!

Time for the Tooth Fairy

So, Harper FINALLY lost his first tooth. It seems that he's a bit later than most kids but I wasn't worried since I've never met...
