Spending time in nature is a huge part of our family life. We love it, we need it, we cherish it. Lately, with our busy schedules we haven’t had as much time to get out into nature as much as we would like. But, we could still hear them calling. The mountains were calling, and we just couldn’t ignore it anymore.
We knew we didn’t have a lot of time, but we pack the kids in the car, and headed to one of our favorite spots.
We knew we only had a couple of hours of daylight left, but we just had to get out up there. We needed it.
If you’ve ever lived near the mountains, then perhaps you know what I’m talking about. We lived away for many years without any mountains in sight, but I could still hear them calling my name.
I just love this little family of mine, and somehow that love intensifies when we remove our little family from distractions like TV’s, and other electronics, and it’s just us and nature.
Nature is truly good for the soul. There’s just something about it!
Husband and I couldn’t be more happy than when we are lying on a blanket watching our children discover the world around them. Building sandcastles, finding treasures (rocks), and digging for “buried treasures.”
They were certain a pirate left his treasures here, they even claimed that there was an “X” to mark the spot! I always say, nature is the best babysitter!
It was just what we needed! We felt rejuvenated and ready to get back to the daily grind!
So, do you have a special place that helps rejuvenate your soul? Do share!
