A Day At the Falls...


Last week, we had the great joy of visiting Connecticut and staying with my parents (Bama and Papa to the kids). We had lots of lovely times together but, without a doubt, this day was one of my favorites...

We went to visit a waterfall... it was free, it wasn't crowded, the weather was cooperative. I love the pure happiness I got to see on my children's faces...

Daddy and A. take in the view... and toss a few pebbles.



Papa casts a line... and catches a trout!




Bama supervises C. climbing the steps...

The beauty of nature... the comfort of family... the sound of children's laughter...

Definitely a few of the finer things in this Mama's life.
