hiking with my big kids

Patrick had his wisdom teeth pulled in July (poor bunny) and had some time off to recover.  On his final day at home I left Nick with him and took James and Ruby up to Devil's Lake.  It was so fun to have a day with just the two of them!

They are both old enough that I didn't have to worry about them near the edges as much as I would have with Nick.  Of course, they tried to push it a little but overall they did really well with the boundaries I gave them.

We hiked for a few hours and then swam for a bit before heading home.  James said he never wanted to see rocks or water again.  :)  They both loved it.

I want to remember to plan a day like this again next year.  It was so fun.
