Braille Trail


We had a lovely weekend. Did you? On Saturday we drove up into the mountains to check out the Braille Trail, a trail made especially for the visually impaired. We told the girls we were going for a little hike in the forest. Cordelia was totally in the know and happy, Elise was screaming, "We're going to the forest!" When I asked her what a forest is, she was stumped. She knew soon enough. We coasted through the trees and up into the beautiful forest that is just beyond our community. It was awesome! The girls had a blast, Eric went rogue and wandered through the hills taking photos.  We stopped by a little creek. We took our sweet time...or rather the girls took their sweet time and we were happy to watch and encourage.

When we finished the trail we decided to continue on through the mountains, so our adventure ended up spanning much of the day and it was such a beautiful treat to explore our own backyard and take in the beauty of our state.

No, we didn't bring a picnic, but we will next time!

I love the photos! I was also glad to see Cordelia got to wear that dress. She'd talked about it quite a few times to me Friday night.
