Mountain Hiking

Ahh the outdoors. I LOVE FALL. Its not too hot, its not too cold. We can spend all our time outside. This week we left the house mid morning and spent all day in the mountains. We brought lunch up there, the kids brought their nature journals, colored pencils, crayons, bubbles, binoculars, a compass and a drive to have an adventure day, an exploring day. We all craved the day away and it was wonderful. The weather was perfect. Sun shining, a light breeze perfect for a hike. We ate lunch and played on the playground then we set off on our hike. Coming back from the hike we sat at a picnic table and sketched, talked, laughed a lot, had snack, played some more then geared up to drive home. On the way home..they both slept. Over an hour, they both deeply slept in the car and I enjoyed the quiet and comfort that we had a wonderful day together.
(Working on her Halloween costume all week - she's sewing it herself, our daughter wore her 'headphone bow' out on our adventure!)

As we spent the day in the beauty of nature both of the kids begged to not leave saying how nice it would be to live in the mountains, among the tree's, way high, secluded in nature. A long lost dream of mine and my husbands...a dream that perhaps when we grow old together and its just he and I..a log cabin in the woods. I smiled as they both enjoyed the time in this beautiful change of scenery.
