Day 5: Heading Home

On our last day there we loaded up the car and headed home. Before we hit the highway, we stopped in for a great breakfast at Flapjacks. It was so good and we enjoyed eating together. It was relaxing and the perfect way to finish off our trip. We decided that next year we will do this again, and try to go when it isn't raining so we can spend more time out doors. One of the things that I did forget to mention is that the kids and Matt did get to see a bear. We were heading out somewhere, and the kids were heading to the vans when Caleb tells everyone there is a bear. Well all the men were like OK, yea a bear until they looked and there really was a bear. All the kids go running on the porch, yelling a bear. Rebecca and I come out in time to see a furry black bottom running down the driveway out of sight. It was pretty exciting (even though I only saw the hiney) Caleb was out of breath and a little nervous, but I think the kids scared the toddler bear more than he scared them. He wasn't a baby, but defiantly wasn't a teen either, so I dubbed him the toddler. We kept a look out after that for him, or his mom (who I am sure was around somewhere) but never saw them. we were out on the porch one night and heard some trash cans being knocked down, but that was all.

We had a great time and the kids ask when we are going back. It would be so much fun to do it again. Spend more time outdoors and enjoying God's work.
