East Clear Creek

We drove up to the pines for some fun. The kids were all smiles running around the area, there were lots of laughs and excited chatting and some pretty cool Spiderman poses as well.

It was pretty much the best family trip we’ve taken. A gorgeous place with no other people around… super simple… just the best.

Allan hadn’t been to this particular place so he checked the map a couple of times to make sure he was always on the right trail. He was 🙂

The kids dove into the fresh fruit and then ran happily around the car while waiting for Allan to come back from looking around.

We’re still not quite entirely unpacked from our failed move a few weeks ago and the older girls’ sweaters are nowhere to be found. That simply meant wearing mommy’s sweaters.

Oh man did we have fun.

I had to take my sweater off right after this, it was too warm.

When they weren’t in the water playing they were up on the shore playing in all the glorious sand. Payson was running back to the creek when he tripped and fell in the soft sand. He was impressed with his muddy self.

After we’d played in the creek and sand for a long time we dried off the kids and changed them into their regular clothes and I put Ember in the Ergo so we could go explore some other parts of the creek.

The kids loved when we’d get to a place on the “trail” where we’d have to cross over the water. Brooklyn loved that she didn’t need help to cross while the middle two kids did.

Outdoor time makes for some happy kids 🙂
