An Expotition- In Which The Pepito's Take a Break

This year has been full of busyness, we have had lots of extra projects and sad events that we could not have foreseen at this time last year. The children have been troopers through it all and we could not have managed the extra commitments without their help.

Sometimes though, we need to put the work aside and take a day to just be together. The best places we have found for getting closer as a family and building relationships usually involve being outside. Because we are in an area that is somewhat new to us, we have had to explore a bit to find lovely spots for family time. Our last expotition, as we like to call them in honor of Pooh Bear, was to Rainbow Pools near Yosemite.
It took us almost two hours of driving and although it was sunny in the valley, rain was coming down at our pretty destination. However, the rain proved to be an asset because for one reason the parking lot was empty, which gave us leave to be as loud and silly as we wanted, and also because the rain had brought California Newts out in hordes. It was so neat for my little ones to see these spectacular little orange newts and I loved sharing their wonder.
It was a lovely, restful day and I was sad when all too soon it ended.
