We counted a lot of lizards while we were exploring. I couldn't help but delight in taking lizard pictures. Almost as fun to photograph as ducks.
This is the old tobacco barn. Reid would only stand in the doorway, as it was very dark inside and he said it was too scary.
Sharpening a few tools in the blacksmith shop. The boys also enjoyed working the huge billows for the fire.
Tree marker along our hike. One fun thing about the hike is that it has numbers throughout, with information you can follow in a brochure.
The old Sparks cemetery sits on a ridgetop, and has a number of graves all marked with fieldstones.
Filling our hands to the brims with nature. The boys are always stuffing their pockets with rocks and flowers and other goodies.
The twins don't read yet, but they sure do like to pretend that they do!
What a fun filled day. I hope the Mother's Day hike is a tradition my boys will pass down to their own families. It's a wonderful way to spend a special day.
