Labor Day Hike

The kids and I hiked Spruce Mountain a few weeks ago with some friends and we loved it so much that we took John back there today. It's a great hike for kids and the views are amazing. Today's weather was perfect and we had such a fun time together!


We had to share the trail with several horseback riders. I think I counted six horses!
Will is in one of those phases where he rolls his eyes whenever I try to take his picture. This is one of three photos I was able to take of him today. Doesn't he look absolutely thrilled?





After we finished, we went to 3Margaritas (our fave!) for dinner. It was delicious as usual!

I was so thankful for a family day since John was in Dallas all weekend. I'm feeling a little blue that our weekend is coming to a close, but thankfully, this will be a short week.

Hope your Labor Day has been a great one!

I just told my husband, "this girl whose blog I'm reading lives in the most beautiful area of the country!" How blessed you are! And I read the last post so I know you know it!

Great pics, Mer. Y'all had a beautiful day for it.

I can see your header! And your lovely new profile pic too! ;o)

I love Arkansas, but what really anchors me here is my family. I could be just as happy almost anywhere else as long as my family was there too.

Love you,

Diane

Oh, how jealous I am of the pretty blue sky where you are - we are having a movie/game day and waiting out the rain. Glad John is safely back from his trip!

My gosh, the scenery is so stunning -- it looks like a painted movie set. What a fantastic way to spend a day as a family.
