We are enjoying a wonderful time of relaxation in Massanutten thanks to the generosity of my parents. Yesterday it was a beautiful day outside so we decided to go for a hike. We picked a moderate hiking trail that was about 3 miles total which was perfect for the kiddos. The 4 oldest kids all walked the entire time and even Emma was a champ and walked almost half of the time! She always amazes us when we go to Longwood Gardens with the amount of walking she does, and this hike was no different. The kids had fun collecting different kinds of acorns and it was a great opportunity to observe trees and plants, as we have been studying botany in school this year.
