Walking with DD - It's a Wonderful Day!

Sunday, August 25, 2013

The weather here today was unbelievable for NC in August - I think our high temp today was around 83, and it was dry and sunny.


Who knew that could happen here?? My 13 yo dd and I decided not to waste it and took the dog and a backpack full of waters and headed out on a hike. We walked about 8 1/2 miles in about 3 1/2 hours.

Our feet are a bit tired, but we had a great time together. AND... we feel like we've both earned a bowl of ice cream.

    Sounds like you and daughter had a wonderful time! It's so rewarding when our kids (especially at "that age") decide to do things like that - and so important to us as parents. My kids are long past that now (youngest is 48) but we used to have some fun times together, often a one on one deal (there were 4 of them).

    We still have some fun times, but it's different now..but still just as rewarding.
