Salem Pond and Hiking

My mom lives very close to a nice pond and playground.  One morning Amber, Mom, Dean, the boys, and I went down to the pond to play.  The boys went into the water with Mom, and I stayed up on the grass and chatted with Amber and played with Dean.  A very pleasant morning.  And then time to go bathe the boys.  Pond water is fun but definitely requires a wash off.

I think it was later that same afternoon that we went for a little hike with Megan's family.  It was a short but beautiful hike called "The Grotto."  The name doesn't fit.  If I was Anne Shirley I'd probably call it Wood's Way or something like that.  

Over the River

And through the woods

To the Waterfall!

There was a bird's nest built into the side of the mountain wall.




Those moments made me want to move to Utah.  What an amazingly beautiful place!

Oh! The Anne Shirley reference reminds me why we're friends! :)
