Day 1724 | New Animals


As the days of summer slip away, we continue to check things off our bucket list (I promise I’ll post an updated one soon!).

Todays line item was “looking for new animals”. We headed to Beaver Creek Reaerve for this adventure. I managed to convince the boys to go on a ~2 mile hike and everything. The trail wasn’t well groomed, the mosquitoes were fierce, and the only animal we spotted was a butterfly (seriously…no birds or squirrels even), but we had a really good time. It was fun to see the boys in that environment without complaining or whining. Spontaneous adventures are fun—today was a good reminder of that.

Also, Robbe discovered that animals like to poop on stairs so it wasn’t a totally wasted trip.
