We had a caravan with the Browns out to Howell Island for a hike. They had not been there before and we were ready to see it again. The Missouri River water level was low enough that we could walk across and get to the island, so it would be a prefect day.
We ended up hiking about 4 miles round trip. The kids were not going to put up with much more, but it was worth it. A great setting for family photos!
The kids were quite excited by the tiny snake that we saw.
But possibly the best part for the kids was eating at the Old Spaghetti Factory at the end!
