This might be our favorite place.
This Shikatehawk trail is beautiful to hike. It is quite long in its entirety but we go just as far as the deep hole, which is just the right length for two and a half year old legs. Once we’re there, the boys love to throw rocks, watch sticks float down the brook, catch imaginary fish for me to eat… they could do it for hours. We have countless pictures from here and there are probably countless more to come.
This latest hike was last Sunday morning, a beautiful sunny spring morning. It was this kind of morning…
The buds were just starting to pop on the trees, there were a few spring flowers to be found, and we even found enough fiddleheads to have for supper that night (which the boys loved helping me “hunt” for… Oliver would say, “heeeeeeerre fiddly fiddly fiddly head”).
And these two were particularly agreeable for pictures that day, which of course makes me happy. I think this one has to go in a frame.
I love this shot of my boys playing together.
