Our first attempt occurred this past weekend. My kids were anxious to test out the gear we purchased for our New Mexico trip, so we decided to go hiking. A quick google search for "Bergen County hiking" led us to the Palisades Park website and a list of moderate rated trails. We chose Carpenter's Loop I - a 2.5 mile hike on even terrain with just one rocky descent - as our first official family hike. All went really well and boy was I tired when we got home, the kids slept like rocks that night too.
Packed some portable snacks in our Camelbacks and a cooler for the car where we would enjoy lunch afterwards.
Of course, I lugged my camera along.
My goofy tourists.
Tell me, what are your family adventures like? Do you have set times when your family does things together?
