The List Goes On!

I’m getting excited now that the weekend is almost here – ready to begin our series of summer adventures. I spend a bit of time updating our possible weekend list and came up with some different ideas (some close, and some quite a ways away). Luckily it looks like this Saturday we’re finally going to have a break from all of this crazy rain and hail!

If anyone would like to join us on our weekend adventures, we’d love to have you!! This list isn’t in any order of course – just a group of random places and possibilities.
