I may have still been on a high from my crunchy leaf expedition when I suggested on Sunday afternoon that we take a family hike.
Yes, you read that right. Don't feel bad if it shocks you, I can hardly believe it myself.
I'm not exactly the outdoorsy type, as much as I'd like to be. I'm sort of allergic to the outdoors. I want to enjoy it, but it usually just makes me sneeze and have a runny nose. Plus, it is often hot, cold, and/or contains a lot of bugs.
And we all know how I feel about certain types of bugs.
But you see, Sunday, was a crisp, cool, beautiful day and the crunchy leaves were calling my name. It REALLY could have backfired. We could have ended up out in the middle of NOWHERE with two children who wanted to be carried back to SOMEWHERE.
Thankfully, God had mercy on our ambitious nature (no pun intended) and blessed us with a beautiful hike. I didn't need a Kleenex once, and the boys LOVED it.
Best of all, we stumbled upon this...
