My plan for Sunday was to climb Monument Hill. We used to do it twice a year, but our last trip was a bit traumatic (see the pics of Mason's eyes swelled shut). So the kids vetoed me, and decided we needed to spend the day in our backyard - specifically in the brook. There's plenty to do - catching fish, frogs, spotting the snapping turtle, paddling behind the beaver pond. . .
We had a blast - once again proving that nothing fancy is needed to have the perfect day.
