Time for a Reboot

Giving this another shot

This blog was supposed to be somewhere that I share our family’s love for the amazing outdoor spaces that we, as a nation, have set aside for future generations to love as we do.  It really doesn’t work too well if I don’t actually blog anything. 

With that said, I’m giving this another shot.  We have a four year old who already loves being active outdoors, hiking, and just plain burning off energy any way he can, but his younger sister hasn’t been given that type of exposure yet.  It is my great hope to instill an appreciate and respect for nature in both of them.  It’s already simmering in my son with the trips we’ve taken to Hawaii and Shenandoah National Park, but it still needs to be fostered and expanded.

So, with all that said, I’m going to attempt to restart this blog.  Hopefully any readers I do have find what I have to say useful or at least entertaining.
