Today after church, we headed for the mountains. A quick stop at Subway made an instant picnic with no prep work for Mom. It was a lovely day, clear and sunny and temps that were just right. We had our lunch at a picnic area, then drove to the trail head that leads to a lake.
DFD#2 rode on DH shoulders for awhile, Morning Star carried the backpack.
After hiking nearly a mile, we arrived at the lake.
Nearby we spied a patch of snow. Here is DH and our "current family" standing in the snow. A snowball fight broke out right after this picture. (how often does THAT happen on Mother's Day?) DFS#2 made a tiny snowman.
DFD#2 sunk in to her knees and was not too happy about it. As you can see, She's not getting any help from Morning Star....
After the hike back to our truck, we went on a long drive through the mountains on an unfamiliar road, just enjoying the day. The boys rode on the back of the truck, and the girls fell asleep. It was a wonderful Mother's Day.
