Fishin' and Swingin'

Days of rain and too much indoor time this week left us in need of fresh air.

Sunshine and cool temps led us to a state park that is within minutes of our house on this beautiful winter day.

Jack divided his time between the playground and fishing with his Pop.

My dad had to cut the line after Jack hooked a nearby tree.

All Mattie wanted to do was swing and then swing some more.

"How do you like to go up in a swing,
      Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
       Ever a child can do."
-From The Swing by Robert Louis Stevenson

These swung as well, and round and round she went.

We also saw some signs of wildlife:

Deer tracks

 And a snake skin

When you've been inside all week, spending an entire day outdoors lifts the spirits of young and old alike.
