I have 3 kids and 2 school schedules. This does not lead to ideal family vacation time so we take advantage of the little moments when they present themselves. Today was a beautiful, warm, sunny day so we decided to take a hike at Umstead Park. We would like to get the kids conditioned enough to hike Yosemite National Park. So, we start with baby steps. We hiked for 90 minutes and they weren’t ready to stop! We left them wanting more! It is great exercise for everyone in our family and it’s quality time that we can spend together, unplugged, alone, and not consuming something ( either food or material items ). It was a great day spent as a family. Thank you North Carolina for your warm sunny days and Umstead Park for a beautiful place to seize the moment.
