~A Saturday Hike~

The children asked if we could go on a hike Saturday morning. I had in mind a place that we could do a little hiking, and then a safe place along the river for the children to explore and play while I rested and watched them play. And that is exactly what we found. This county has a great website that gives you many choices for all the trails to hike and places to picnic. I chose one that I thought would fit everybody’s different needs, threw a bunch of snacks in my camera bag, and off we went. The trail was perfect. Even Gabe was even to do some walking on his own. Then we headed sown to the river to play and explore.

Trying to catch water skippers. Or more accurate, whack them with a stick.

Ice cold river!

Hmm.. I love Jesus. I love my husband, Eric. I love my 8 beautiful children. I loved living in California. I love sunshine and the beach. Shopping at farmers market and the little stores downtown where I can bargin for the best deal. I love to sew and make things. I love spending time with girlfriends encouraging each other. Date nights with Eric are fabulous. I love ballroom dancing with him. The smell of my new little baby and the miracle of their existance. I love italian food- or just about all of Italy for that matter. I love art- paintings on my wall that I know personally who painted them.
