Aug 10th to 14th Adventure.

As much as I loved growing up in Wyoming, there biggest complaint was, nothing to do, it was a good and a bad thing.  Good because you had to use your imagination to find ways to entertain yourself, bad because if you didn't have an imagination, you were bored.

Now we are in Utah and there is more to do then can get done in a day, and I am not taking advantage.  It has become really easy to stay in the house all day, "cleaning"(reading Harry Potter series), and letting Charlee just play in wherever.  This month I have been pushing myself to take Charlee on a Weekly Adventure,  I thought I would share with you what were we hope to go weekly, if you'd like to join us great, just email me.  Thought I would share some ideas with you.  I would like to promise that I will give you a review of the event, I will try, but not promises.
