This is my first time hosting The Family Network’s Monthly Challenge! I am so excited! It’s a great challenge that we can all do! Here are some of the details :

My family loves to be outdoors together. We start in early spring getting everything ready for a whole season of outdoor living as much as possible! We get the gathering area ready:

We love doing things outside together! Last night we took the kids for a late night walk, we went 3.5 miles. It was hot during the day so we figured night would be good. This coming weekend we plant to take the kids on a camping trip, it'll be the first time we've taken all three of them.

Later this month we plan to take them to observe the stars with the telescope. We will probably do a few easy trails this month too, I can't do anything to crazy since my ankle is still recovering from the broken bone & torn ligament I received in our accident 4 months ago.
