Enjoying Family and Nature - What Could Be Better?

Monday, October 15, 2012

Under a beautiful blue October sky, my family and I hiked at a nearby state park yesterday. The autumn colors were just beginning to show off. The temperature was moderate. The trails weren't crowded. It was perfect! We even stopped for a healthy SparkPeople friendly picnic between trails.

the sun silhouettes us against the dam at the lake

me, Sophie hanging dead-to-the-world from her daddy's back, son-in-law, daughter, husband, son - at the base of the falls
Sophie, Josh and Annie by the lake
Annie and Jacob - my lovely offspring!
Sophie and Jeff at the lakehouse where we picnicked between trails

What a blessing when all of our schedules align with God's handiwork and we escape for a taste of paradise!

    This is so beautifull. Sophie is a little miss now. Seeing her in your arms as an infant and seeing her on her own two feet is a marvelous transition. All of your family look to be pictures of good health, yes, you included. The Falls are a hike getting back, aren't they? Not so bad going down. Hope you have many more glorious days like that! emoticon

    What a beautiful fun day that looks like! I would love to live in a hilly fall-colored environment. I also like that you guys can wear sweaters and such--I'm still in shorts here in South Georgia!
