Mother's Day in a Cold, Gloomy, Beautiful Park

After church on Sunday we drove out to William Bryant State Park to hike and grill out. My favorite parts were reading my new book enjoying the hour and a half ride out to the park; Dietrich clearly saying "dog", "stick", and "no" for the first time; and playing frisbee and soccer (together) with the two older boys. It was quite a bit colder than we had expected so we left before dinner and drove back home with the kids taking very late naps in the car. Bekah left for her Bible study group and Brad and I got the boys down to sleep for the night. We had a very sweet time playing our new game Blokus (thank you Lohstreters for introducing us to it and to Kara & Brian for giving it to Brad for his birthday (-:) and some truly excellent zinfandel (Seven Deadly Zins -- thank you, Gollihers, to introducing us to this; It's the first timewe've had some since ourred wine party right after Dietrich was born). We stayed up very late and enjoyed talking and being with each other. It was a wonderful Mother's Day for me.

Throwing rocks in the river -- the boys favorite part of the day. They probably would have happily done this for a few hours.

This slippery, crazy rock that was a fantastic natural slide
