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!
