River Walk

Last week we took the whole family on the Brunswick Riverwalk trail. I don't know if that's it's official name, but that's what we call it. The kids call it "the river walk". The trail follows along, you guessed it, the river! It's a really pretty path and I can't wail until it's summer and everything green again! Of course, Chad and Vance's allergies will make it a frustrating place to be, but I'll enjoy it!McKaylie and Noah took their scooters. They actually stayed on their scooters longer than I thought they would, about half way. After that, they passed them on to us, which Chad was more than happy to play on. I just pushed it along. Myshel and Vance were on their roller blades. It was late afternoon, warm and a perfect day for a walk. We ended up walking about a mile. But, by the time we got back to the car, the little kids were grumpy, grumpy bears and I was wishing we hadn't gone! I think it was just too late in the day, and the kids were just tired. They'd spend most of the afternoon running around outside before we left. I always love spending time with all the family on days like this, but next time, we'll go earlier in the day!

You really have the cutest family! Love your husband on the little scooter! Family time is special and even if it ends in grumpy kids and mom, the good times will still be remembered in the end. Beautiful area!
