Family vacation, new tires, Emma’s band camp = the poor house–smile. If only I could get the ocean out of my mind. I want to live right there on the beach… OK, back to reality. I had to find some local amusement so off to Mohican State Park for a hike. It’s close to home and I love outings where the kids can just do what they do best, be kids. Hallie hiked the full two miles. Picnic lunch and a reluctant Hallie who refused to get into the river (darn Netflix documentaries about killer fish)=an overall delightful day.
