We spent our first week of summer in the Ozarks and my kids went hard. The week was a blur because they crammed in as much as possible into every day. There was a lot of swimming, paddle boarding, a lazy river, a ropes course, and the last day we went out on the boat. We spent two hours swimming or tubing and I liked how everyone had a different style jumping in.
Charlie would just run off the side, ready to go. Chris took giant dives in. Harper kind of walked/hopped off.
We had so much fun this week and are fully embracing this fun age the twins are. Big enough to decide for themselves what they want to do, small enough that they want us to do it with them. I hope this summer is different than last in a lot of ways, here’s to adventures both big and small!
And in case you’re wondering, Sam’s preferred method is to be handed into the water, given a snack, and float around on dad while he watches the action go down.
