We had our seven children, a son-in-law and a daughter-in-law, and four grandbabies all here with us (in Aberdeen) for the holiday.
We were able to get out for several local hikes, including Southern Pines Reservoir Park and Weymouth Woods State Park.
Also, we took the kids to a couple of local playgrounds–the one at Aberdeen Lake, and another one near Aberdeen historical district.
I have to admit, without water, the lake wasn’t quite as picturesque. ; )
