Adventure Playground

I found out about adventure playground a few days ago when Secret Agent Josephine posted a photo on Instagram. IMG_6470 My sister-in-law and her friend came with us and my sister drove down with her kids. We got there a little after 12:30 and right after a bus full of kids showed up so it was busy for the first few hours. Porter just wanted to hammer and saw for the first hour, not wanting to get wet.

After he observed the rope bridge he decided he could cross it without getting wet and he did a few times before he fell. IMG_6531 IMG_6533
Once he fell in he was fine and went on the rafts and mud slide. IMG_6559
Liesl and Miranda spent the majority of their time on the rafts. IMG_6487
"this is cold but awesome" Liesl
The kids were a wet dirty mess at the end of the day but, they had such a fun time, I know we will be making a trip up again.

Lemonade Stand

We set up a lemonade/ice tea/cookie stand today! The kids made $28! We are going to have a few more this summer and donate the money to their school. photo-68 photo-67 photo-66

Kirk Creek Campground - Big Sur

Last week we went camping with some friends in Big Sur. Neither of us had ever been up there so we were looking forward to it. Our first night there we stayed in campsite number 13. The site was all dirt and surrounded by poison oak so, when the ranger asked us the next morning if we wanted to move we said yes. Untitled bigsur-4550 The little tent on the right is the one we slept in. We borrowed a tent from my friend because I was afraid we would be too cold in the one we have. Well we forgot to get the poles for the tent so we all had to sleep in one little tent we brought for the kids to play in. Untitled bigsur-4585 We moved to site 19 and it was all grass and overlooking the water. bigsur-4617

 The mornings were so cold but, the kids really didn't mind. bigsur-4837 bigsur-4924
 We had some fun times but after two nights sleeping like this... P1050783holford
 We decided to pack up and drive down to San Louis Obispo and sleep in a hotel.
