PQ 22-23- Canoeing and Biking

It seems so long ago now that we finished up Park Quest- definitely great memories! Sometime mid-summer I got the bug/ fever/ thought that maybe we could do all 24 ParkQuests. but a big part of it depended on if James could do some with us. We loved when he could go with us but he was away for a lot of the summer. So we did the ones we could without him. But canoeing and biking are pretty tough for one mom, five kids. So we were extra glad we he could go do these with us! 

T and C got to canoe with Daddy

The rest of us hiked and got to see this a couple chipmunks!

two of our hikers

The trail went along the water's edge where we kept watch out for our  paddlers

We love this playground- our third year there and loved it each time- Seneca Creek State Park

Baby C's first time there

T was tuckered out

We loved biking too- Patapsco 

Fun times!

James took the boys and did the big loop. The girls and I did the 4 year old bike. We were very happy for James to come pick us up at the bottom of the hill. One of the things I've loved about Parkquest is it's an incentive to get out and do things. Sure we could have gone biking that day without parkquest but would we? Parkquest definitely makes it into my top things we'll miss about Baltimore when we move. Good times, good memories!
