Hike to the Lake

Well hello there blog. It’s been a while. I haven’t been ignoring you. I haven’t run out of things to tell you. On the contrary, it has been a jam-packed few weeks and it’s hard sometimes to know where to begin. The end of the school year? The start of summer? The Ruby visit? The fact that today – this very day – Boo moved to town? All of the above eventually, but I will start with a hike to the lake.

On the TrailWe took a trip up to see my parents recently, and although I lament the miles between us I can at least be happy they live in a beautiful setting that’s fun to visit. We lucked out with temps only topping out in the mid-70s (for the first week of June? Right on!) and it was the perfect day to be outside. So we packed a picnic lunch and hiked down to a lake and back before settling in for sandwiches in the cool breeze.

At the Lake with NanaCamille wanted to lead the way (of course), so we taught her about trail blazes and let her set the pace.
