Over the weekend my parents, husband, the kids and I went to our cousins to go hiking. Right across the street from my cousin's house was a long and beautiful trail. I love places that are alone and quiet. It was beautiful weather for the season and we only came across one jogger. There is a pretty big lake that we walked to and the little rock cliffs fascinated the kids (especially the littlest one).
Even the trees here are happier.
I'm glad my dad was with us, he doesn't get much time off, so he really deserves to relax when he does. Although, we hiked for three miles - so he probably didn't rest much.
The kids loved being with their cousins, we haven't seen them since we went to Florida at the same time last March.
After our hike we came home and my husband's bff (he'd kill me if he knew I called him that) came over and helped him clean up the yard, and then the kids jumped in the HUGE piles of leaves. We have a decent sized yard and tons of trees so ... This isn't even the first time we raked.
It was a great weekend, we really spent a lot of time together outside in the unseasonably warm weather and it felt so good. I love to see my children playing outside and having so much fun.
