Its all about the little things!

Yesterday my kids and I and our little dog Charley went on a little hike to Palisade Falls. A hike we have done a hundred times over. It is an easy hike and it is paved so we take visitors up there every year. I tell you it was the best time I have had hiking ever!! Just spending time with my kids, remembering yesterday as they ran down the path together like they were 6 and 10 all over again. I cherished the laughing, giggling, Ben throwing rocks and jumping on all the stumps and rocks in the area, the scenery, getting wet in the water, and I even saw little green bushes with a splashes of red berries. It was heavenly. Not only did I enjoy all of that, but my son, whom I love beyond measure, actally let me take his picture. That is a rare treat for sure. Yesterday was a fantastic day and I am thankful for those moments and memories!!

Here are some pictures from our day:

Thanks for looking!! I am amazed at how alike those two are. They even walk in sync!

I have tons of stuff to do before we leave tomorrow, but I will be back later to post the layout I did for the So Sketchy Blog.

Have a great day!!
