We did. Yes, we went for a little hike up the creek.
Not far up, we found this rock.
The biggest petrified wood we have ever found. We left it there, and kept going on our hike.
Found mushrooms of all sizes, colors and shapes.
A beautiful leaf it caught Lucas’s eye. It reminded me of autumn, that it is coming.
Roots. Just look at these roots!
A heart shape rock.
I love hiking up on the creek.
Getting muddy is not too bad when you have water running next to you.
And when you find surprises like these… what a treat it is.
Spores. A science experiment? A science lesson at least, and something they won’t forget.
Trees taller than anything around. How many years? What do they tell from years of standing by this river bed?
A collection to bring home. And a backpack with the airline name tag, because it reminds us of our travels last month.
Lunch in nature always seem so much better. Doesn’t it? After swimming in the creek, after a hike, sitting on a huge log.
A little present from Lucas given with the biggest smile, in his little hands like the most wonderful found treasure. And yes it is. Thank you. I love you too my little guy.
Oh… his laugh I can hear it as I watch this photo.
His voice, his eyes, his love. I can feel it.
Her cute face. I can see it even with my eyes closed.
Treasures. Memories. I love them all.
