Early one morning we slept in a little, because it was the weekend, and we could.
Then we left a messy, neglected house behind and set off for the local coffee shop.
Where the Momma and Daddy had some much needed coffee and the Littles shared a chocolate milk.
With that satisfied, we wandered over to a nature trail for a little hike through the forest, admiring the fallen logs, ivy covered trees, wild blackberry blooms and everything fresh and green.
I was blessed with this bouquet of lupines, picked especially for me by my husband, at least I'm pretty sure they are lupines.
I haven't seen them since I went to Newfoundland as a teen.
