Adventuring is hard work. It doesn't come easily. It means that you have to get off your couch and do something. But it is so worth it and it eventually just becomes your way of life. I love watching the kids explore and I love the simple joy they get out of finding little waterfalls running off of wet rocks.... J1 stood here for probably 10 minutes just catching water in his hands and laughing quietly to himself. Makes everything worth it.
On a side note, I've officially decided the majority of our transcontinental trip sharing pictures and stories will have to come after we are settled In the new house. It's become clear that internet and data is unreliable, and I'm not keeping up with picture editing because...well, I'm taking more pictures and adventuring. Lol. As we get a chance, I'll update our Instagram stories for our latest explorations (like I did today). But suffice it to say, we had an EPIC time in South Dakota and are thrilled to now be in Alberta, Canada!
