Just a Little Lost

Momma, are we going in circles?Momma, I just saw that tree like 5 minutes ago.Momma, I'm tired.
My feet hurt.
I can't walk anymore.Is it going to get dark soon?Our "short" walk yesterday turned into a 6 mile hike after we missed our turn onto a bridge and managed to follow a trail that led to a washed out bridge instead.

There were a few complaints, a few requests to be carried. But overall, it was quite the adventure. We explored, we studied, we observed. We were able to see the woods, beaches, streams, and lakes. We found turtles, salamanders, bugs, and turkey tracks. It was exciting and tiring. Very tiring.But, even with all the complaints, I've already heard requests to "do it again next week."

The unexpected can be so much fun if welcomed even just a little :) Glad you made it home safely!

What a trooper! Six miles is huge for little legs.

Fun times! I can imagine that you all were a little tired after that but you have wonderful memories and awesome pictures from it!
