These really are the best days of our lives.
Days when it is just our little family.
No technology to distract us (no cell phone service helps with that!)
When we can all just play, and be together in God's beautiful creations.
Last weekend we decided to take the 2 hour drive upto the International Peace Gardens, located at the border of the US and Canada.
The peace gardens were pretty, and the girls really enjoyed taking photos and exploring, but as we were leaving, we decided to take some of the scenic drives around the area, and we stumbled across the most perfect picnic area I have ever seen.
The entire area was shaded with huge trees, right on the lake. There were a couple of pavillions with tables to picnic, and the most perfect old wooden swings and a simple metal slide. That was it. We didn't eat there, but we just played...for over an hour. We swung, we slid, we played with sticks, climbed in trees, and took pictures. When we told the girls it was time to leave they wanted to stay. (We probably would have stayed until dark, but we needed to go eat dinner (an hour away), and we hadn't packed any food).
