Today we took the route off the beaten path.....We didn't go our normal way around the block. We didn't ask if K wanted to take the short or long way....We just went. We went out into the woods. We passed the houses that we normally avoid. It was amazing to me what we saw. They were normal. I saw a family sitting on their front porch.....I saw a wheel barrow up against the house as if someones been working today to prepare to keep their family warm. I saw trees with beautiful purple berries, wooden benches, carved pumpkins. It was wonderful.
We finally got out into the woods and I watched my boys bloom. They loved it. Rugged land, beautiful trees, out on the 4wheeler and stroller. It really couldn't get much better. Actually it could have.. If I had my camera I would have been in for a treat, but alas, I didn't. I only had my phone and had to make due with what I had.
