We have been getting a lot of rain lately. There is so much standing water the kids have been fishing in the front yard.
Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!
The sun is out and I am wishing I could be hiking with Allan.
Though, maybe not here. We were hiking “The Crack and the Mudslide” in the Drakensburg. It was the hardest hike I have ever done. It was beautiful though.
After Megan’s soccer game (they won 2-0), we decided hot chocolate was just what we needed.
Today we had fun babysitting my niece’s son. He was a little charmer and the kids had fun spoiling him.
It was a beautiful day for Easter this year!
Daddy wanted us to find some new Easter outfits for the kids. So we decided to go with the “1950’s” look.
After church, we enjoyed spending the day with family.
While we were exploring the park on the first day, we discovered a sign pointing to the Nike Missile Base.
Most of us enjoy history, and decided that a tour sounded interesting. We missed the tour the first day but planned to go back.
The tour was excellent. The guide shared a lot of information and the hour and a half tour went by very quickly.
We learned that only men worked at this site. They hated the snakes and the mosquitoes! During free time, they would often race their cars up and down the straight roads outside of the base.
We also learned a lot about the Cuban missile crisis, history while the base was in operation and general history of the area.
If you are ever in the Everglades, I would highly recommend the tour (just check out the times before hand, it is not open all the time)
