Track-Out Adventure To Laurel Hills Park - Another MayVia Experience


Traveling back in time to our spring track out.

We had a rocky start on this particular day.

After piling out of the party van and devouring our picnic lunch we quickly realized that the park we came to had just closed the day before for a renovation.  We were all pretty disappointed! We tried to make the best of it by walking along the trails but we kept coming to dead ends, except for this really cool tunnel. The kids were looking for "clues" through the graffiti and stuff they found inside.








It was hot. We had a plethora of disappointed kids. And we needed a plan fast.

Us mama's put our heads together. were on a quest for some kind of water hole.

Luckily we live near Falls Lake with a million different opportunities for adventure. And that's exactly what we did.  We found a deserted camp ground and took off for a cove to let the kids play around in the water.

2018 Backlog - Zeke's Fort


Zeke has been working on his fort for over a year! 
It has morphed and grown so much since the beginning.
In fact, here is where it began.  A little makeshift kitchen area from a few years prior.


He asked for plywood and other wood scraps for his birthday last year...


...and just kept adding on. 
It is one of the first places he takes visitors when they come over to the house.
