There's a little place my family likes to frequent known as "Almost Heaven". Any good John Denver fan knows that is a line from one of his songs but "Almost Heaven" is also a cabin built by my dad on a lake and a lot of hunting ground. It was a dream of his that came true. Our family spends a lot of time out there....... it's our place to relax, have fun, and just get away from the city and enjoy the beauty of the countryside.We hadn't been out there much over the winter and when I saw how awesome the weather was going to be on Saturday, I got the family together out there for an incredible day! It really did feel like we were in heaven.
These are some of the flowers my mom found out in the woods. She'd like to transplant some of these back at her house. Noah and I took a little excursion of our own on the Gator and went to take some pictures of these flowers........
and I got some really cute pictures of Noah, this being one of my favorite. He also took some of me but I couldn't bring myself to post them. Sorry, I was too scary looking.
The view from the dock.
The weather was gorgeous. We cooked out on the campfire, took numerous Gator rides, went mushroom hunting, cooled off with water fights, did some fishing, and played hard all day. Then we all came back to our house for pizza and margaritas to finish off the day.
Aiden didn't make it too far on the half hour drive home before he was passed out. I think everyone was exhausted from all the fun. The boys are already planning our next trip out there and I for one am ready!
