They watched the sun go down, and headed home safely in the dark- with wonderful stories to tell!!
Sunday afternoon after getting home and settled in... I had put the youngest down for his nap... the 2 oldest has plenty of things to keep them occupied... and the middle two were ready to bounce off the walls! Enter... the adventurous daddy!!! They headed off to a nearby lake to discover a little secret off the beaten path. I knew they were in for some fun!
An hour or so later came the call.... They had decided to hike around the whole lake. The twist? It's after daylight saving's time and in just a few minutes it would be completely dark!! They wouldn't be to other end (where I would meet then in the minivan and drive them back to the truck) until around 6:30. Oh yeah... their only light source was coming from our son's new camouflage hat with LED lights under the bill.
Though Daddy is adventurous, I know that he is always careful with the children. Some things we have done seem pretty crazy, but no one has ever gotten (seriously) hurt!! And from our adventures we have seen so much of God's wondrous beauty!! Nothing can take the place of walking through the woods... in the dark... waiting to hear the coyotes howl...
