I almost took my kids to the art museum today, but after thinking about it I decided they needed to be outside, having good, old-fashioned fun. The weather was just right: partly sunny and balmy. We found a phenomenal trail, and had--quite possibly--the perfect day.
|At the trail head. The three musketeers.|
|The hike followed a creek bed straight up a canyon.|
|Lots of bridges.|
|At the top of the trail at the waterfall.|
|The water was so shallow but actually full of fish. My kids more or less terrified them|
for the better part of two hours. No casualties, though.
|They look so cute!!! And yes, those are the nets from the infamous yard sale.|
|Z played on the rocks the entire time.|
|I did not feel one bit guilty that I had a tomato and homemade pesto sandwich while the|
kids had peanut butter and jelly.
|What makes me a mom.|
|A total miracle: no one's shoes got wet.|
|Please stop growing, Lily. Just stop!|
