We were all longing for some peace and tranquility Saturday. It has been a LONG and HOT summer! We drove up the mountain to a small creek and enjoyed the quiet beauty that surrounded us. Jeremy and I both enjoyed the sand between our toes and the cool creek water. The kids enjoyed splashing and chasing tadpoles, collecting colorful rocks and building a dam with their daddy. Graham tasted all the rocks within reach and loved to immerse his hands in the warm course sand time after time. I love to watch his face as he is exploring his surroundings in each new place we visit. Children truly enjoy the world around them. I am so looking forward to the upcoming adventures we have planned with our children.
