Justin & I left the computers at home. It was so incredibly refreshing. On Saturday we hiked 8 miles in the Big Thicket (warning! we almost stepped on the snake). Then on Sunday, we went canoeing for hours and hours and hours. It was totally serene, except for the two alligators we saw swimming next to us. And then we picnicked. Here’s to leaving technology behind for a few days to hang out in nature. Just like the old days.
