My husband is a nurse, so his schedule is unconventional. That means however that we get to have some fun when the kids are in school. Although my kids are good little hikers, there are some trails that might be a little hard for them. So, when we’re alone we can go on harder trails. Today we found a hike. It ended up being 4.6 miles, with lots of big rocks to step up. At the end, we found this amazing waterfall!
I know I already posted a dinner idea today, but I wanted to share this one before I forget. There are always no leftovers when we make it.
