Wow- it is has been so stinking hot here the last week or so it has been literally unbearable. I know I should be better equipped to handle it, but I guess I've gotten soft in my old age.
As the summer has progressed I am trying really hard to come up with a few new and fun things to do with the boys each week. Today I decided that we would try going and playing in the river at Elizabeth Furnace. I was a little worried about getting to a good spot since I know Grayson doesn't have the best footing in the world and I didn't want to walk with little kids down the side of the road along the river (Doug and I do it, but not with kids in tow!) Doug and I drove along the river the weekend before and found a good place to park OFF the road and that had an easy in access that Grayson could navigate.
So today I packed a little snack picnic, loaded up the boys in swim trunks and lathered them with sun screen and off we went! We spent several hours there and eventually had to leave to get home in time to make dinner for Doug and Reece. I think they could have stayed longer :) This is something we will certainly be doing again.
