All work and no play

My kids certainly enjoy summer. 

Although the animals take up a lot of time, we manage to slip out for lots of fun.

We have season passes to Cedar Point, an amusement park about 1 hour away.

Running down to the river to go tubing

We have a camper and try to take a few week long trips a year.  During the summer we camp locally so we can run home to feed the animals.   Thankfully there is a great state park nearby with a river for tubing, mountain bike trails, fishing, and lots of relaxing.

We tend to camp further from home during spring break. We have camped in the Smokies, Florida, and South Carolina. Next year we are headed back to Florida, this time to St Andrews State Park.

Sports also take a big part in the kids lives.

And, although only Mike enjoys kayaking with me, I do try to get out regularly.

I love the animals, but glad the kids stay involved in extras!
