I haven’t been feeling fabulous this week (or for the last few weeks, for that matter), and I was very much inspired to just sit in my chair all day feeling sorry for myself and ignoring the beautiful November day. But thankfully I have a five-year-old who is seldom inspired to sit around doing nothing, so I was forced into my walking shoes, into the van, and down the road.
We had a beautiful day for a walk– with bright blue skies and vivid sunlight. Not so great for taking pictures, so you’ll forgive the funky shadows.
I thought the rings on this tree stump were beautiful.
It was actually three tree trunks melded together. I’m sure there’s all kinds of deep things I could say here, but I’ll just stick with isn’t that cool?
We found this bridge, and what is it about bridges? My boys just love them. Maybe it’s the echoing noise they make as they run back and forth. Stinky had fun pushing Little One in her stroller on the bridge.
She waved her arms around and generally seemed to enjoy her wild ride. Then I simply had to take her out of there so I could take some pictures.
It’s a little known fact that babies love fall foliage.
If he were your kid, you would have totally caved when he wanted to go do something fun, too.
Tell me that face doesn’t just turn you into a big pile of mush?
I. Adore. This. Picture.
You know, it’s funny. I was trying to decide what to give today and decided that I would be extra super generous and give Stinky my time for a couple hours.
But I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that it was I who received the greatest gift.
Isn’t that just how it works?
Thanks, son, for getting me out in the fresh air and treating me to some joy today.
