Family Adventures Week 2

For the second week of our Sunday afternoon outdoor family adventures, we headed up to the Blue Ridge Parkway and made our way to the Indian Gap parking area. Just a short walk down a wooded path and we arrived at Indian Rocks. And the kids didn't stop climbing and exclaiming for at least the next 30 minutes. (You can click on the photo collage for a bigger image.)


A flat-topped rock served as a perfect picnic table and PB&H sandwiches were enjoyed by all. Then back to the climbing and a bit of hide and seek. Curt managed to take a nap. Yes, lying on a rock. I tell you, the man has crazy sleeping skills.

We only had to have one "serious talk"-- I won't name names, but it involved a lengthy discussion with a certain 4yo about the consequences of pushing his siblings whilst they stood near the edge of a rock with a 20-foot drop to the ground. Ahem.

Stay tuned! I'll try to get the week 3 adventure post up soon so we can be caught up and ready for current updates.
