It was the Perfect Summer Day

It was a gorgeous sunny day.  The perfect day for a hike.
Emmett needed lots of encouragement to go hiking instead of sitting indoors playing computer games.
We stayed at the back of the line and looked at butterflies...
...and dragonflies.
A couple of kilometers is a long way for a little guy.
He had to stop and smell the flowers sometimes. 
We saw a lot of these.  I have no idea what they are, but they sure are pretty, aren't they?
Of course, the spell had to be broken in the car on the way home, when everyone was overtired and bug bitten.  (you don't want to know how many wood ticks came off of these three!)

I think the flowers are columbines. There was always some in mom's garden growing up.

These photos are so beautiful Jennifer! You have such a gorgeous family. Despite life's difficulties of being a mama...we are so blessed aren't we?!
