Take a Hike.

Take a hike. No, really. Do it.  {And, by all means take a friend with you, or three.}

About a week ago the hubs and I got to get out of Dodge and go on a morning hike with some dear friends. We loaded up the car at the wee hour of 7am, left the Bug with my mom {a special thanks to her because she is NOT a morning person}, and drove about an hour away to Watonga, America. It is the home of Roman Nose Park and some amazing cheese. {However, I was the only one in the car who apparently knows about said cheese and the said cheese festival. I smell another road trip, perhaps?}

It was a wonderful chance to UNplug, recharge, and to breathe in some beauty- all while burning a few calories with some good company.

One of the few "pictures" of the trip's photographer- my hubs...
capturing Joel figuring out our route for the day.

Adam just happened to glance down at some railing at the beginning of our hike and saw this- I love coincidences like that. Absolutely perfect.

"For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities-- his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God." 
Romans 1:20

Stars and Stripes.

Stars and Stripes. BBQ and watermelon. Family and friends. Parades and swimming.  The 4th of July.


So very thankful to live in a country where I can enjoy them all thanks to so many others and their sacrifices. A very happy day indeed.
