the ambrose family and the hyams family try to do outings as much as our varying schedules allow…

most of the time, it’s local parks, cookouts or family bike rides/runs but sometimes we manage a full day away!

this time, we pulled off a lake mineral wells state park expedition

we loaded up our coolers with picnic foods, packed the kiddos swim gear and laced up our hiking boots…

it was a gorgeous day – started out cool and never got over low 90’s, i think.

in fact, i woke up early to get a run in before we left and it was only 55 degrees when i ran!!!  i was stoked!
