Childhood Unplugged: Adventuring at Longview Lake

Posted by on Feb 1, 2015 in Childhood Unplugged | One Comment

60 Degrees in January!
Kids are out of school!
Let’s meet up with friends and go exploring!
Wear em out so they’ll sleep better (as you can see in the last picture there’s nothing like winding down with a good book)

This post is part of a collaboration with Childhood Unplugged. I hope you make time to get out and explore the wonders and magic nature has to offer.

Childhood Unplugged: Burr Oak Woods Hiking

Posted by on Jan 1, 2015 in Childhood Unplugged | 3 Comments

We took the 50 degree weather in December as a sign we needed to get out of the house and go adventuring. So we packed a lunch and headed to Burr Oak Woods in Blue Springs where we wandered for a good few hours, found a geocache, jumped off lots of fallen trees and left a You Are Magic Hello Happiness Card Co card full of encouragement for the next geocacher to find. These are the seemingly insignificant outings that I’ll never forget…
