Rockin Our Family Time

Don’t you just love spending time with family? 

Whether your family consists of kiddos, pets, or a significant other, it seems like opportunities for time together are countless, if we’re looking. 

Sunday I wrote a story called “Even the Rocks Rock”, about a gal who started a Community Art Project in our town. (You can read it here if you’d like.)

Yesterday, my husband, Little Bit and I set out to go around town to hide the rocks we made. At the first stop, we were so excited to find three rocks! 

Next, we headed to a nature trail. Located in the center of town, it is filled with local history. 

Our excitement continued as we found three more, in hiding spots that were quite clever, including the crooks of trees.

I can’t even tell you how great it was to get out of the house for a couple of  hours, rockin’ our family time.

      Hi Karen. It was SO fun! We were ahead of the trail and saw several families arrive behind us! :) So far, of our 19 we hid, I’ve seen pictures that 5 have been found!

    Jessica – the rocks made me smile – from Minnie to a skateboard – now that is representing the spectrum – bonus points for that! Ha!
    I also enjoyed resding the sign about the springs
    – like a storm could bring such beauty-
    And then the cure – well I have come to Learn so much about minerals and the health they bring – and so I bet those that were cured had something that magnesium and iron was lethal for – but those that did not get cured had other ailments – hmmmm

      That is so interesting and makes so much sense. If someone didn’t need those particular minerals, those minerals wouldn’t help them. Good point.

    Love your play on words here, Jessica – sounds like a wonderful day out. Glad you found some stones and what a lovely treasure hunt!

    • Jessica July 11, 2016 / 2:32 pm

      Thanks, Annika! I was trying for a catchy title! :) It was really fun. We both seem to have some fun days out. Your”strike” day on the beach with a gorgeous flower garden and a yummy meal. That was a great post! 🌻😊🌻

      • Annika Perry July 12, 2016 / 3:08 am

        Thank you so much again. I feel we are similar in many ways – being with family and friends and sharing happy moments one of our top priorities!

          Couldn’t have said that better❤️💜💗

    Oh Jess, this sounds like so much fun. Just the sort of thing we used to do with the kids when they were much younger. Priceless memories. :) xo

    • Jessica July 13, 2016 / 8:10 am

      I bet you guys had a lot of fun, too. :)

        • Jessica July 13, 2016 / 8:32 am

          STILL do, by the looks of all your photos!

    • Jessica July 13, 2016 / 2:28 pm

      Thank you. I found some more plain rocks outside today that are ready to be fancied up! :) Who knew a rock was such a nice canvas? :)

    Jessica, I remember you saying you were going to make the fairy lanterns I made with your child. I updated the templates so you and everyone else can download them easily.
    And….I must say…you are soooo creative!!!

    • Jessica July 13, 2016 / 4:34 pm

      Oh! How nice, thank you! We haven’t made them yet. :)
