Today the boys and I headed outdoors for some natural entertainment. We have a trail near our house and since the sun was shining and the temp was so agreeable, we decided to take full advantage of it while we could. There were so many awesome things to see today! Wild strawberries nestled in the grass like tiny red rubies scattered along the trail. Caterpillars sunning themselves and cocoons waiting to hatch. Squirrels running here and there and everywhere, frolicking in the beautiful warm sunshine. We walked over to my sister’s house and invited her and Makena to join us on our trek and they were more than happy to oblige. The treasure hunt continued and we found a brilliant blue feather that had fallen from a Blue Jay’s wing. Ryan found a toothpick with an American flag on it and he swore that rabbits and squirrels were trying to demonstrate their love for America. The boys and Makena ran along the trail absolutely enjoying themselves and their laughter rang through the air, traveling high along with the chorus of birds that were singing their favorite songs.
It was a beautiful, wonderful, spiritual walk. I felt so connected to life and family. Amazing.
I hope the sun is shining wherever you are today and that you are able to get out and enjoy it as well!
