Sunday at Discovery Park

I was about to get dressed to go running when it occurred to me that it would be much more fun to spend some time outdoors, together. Spur of the moment outings are often the best ones, have you noticed? We went to Discovery Park, a five minute drive from our house, and hiked through woods to the beach. As the trail widened onto a meadow we saw a bunny; quite a surprise and a charming sight. I was amazed by the daisies and lupine we encountered. When it was time, nobody wanted to leave.

Left to remind us of today in the week ahead, on the counter in a glass of water: a poppy and a daisy and a tiny flowering branch found on the trail.

Yes, it's true that those spontaneous outings are always the best. I think it's because we have such high expectations when we plan. I would have loved to have joined you all, seeing the bunny, the flowers and picking up driftwood. Have a lovely week!

Hiking often turns to play for us, too. I absolutely love the picture of Abbott with the daisy. What a cutie.
