Saturday was a glorious spring day. Michael mentioned what a perfect day it would be to go for a picnic and hike. So I put to the side all I had envisioned to accomplish in order that I could spend the day with my family. And around 11 we set out for a day out in nature.
We hit the road with the windows rolled down and Michael tuned our radio to a station that played 80s music. "We are the Champions" by Queen, "Jenny" or "867-5309" by Tommy Tutone, and "Jessie's Girl" by Rick Springfield serenaded us to the state park.
We found a perfect picnic spot and dined in the sunshine.
After lunch, we fished briefly, but found it to be too windy. So we took off on a hike, down a hill, over the bridge, up a hill, and over more bridges.
The kids found an old tree to cross over
and then we turned back
to walk down a hill, across the bridge, and up another hill.
It was a perfect spring time family day.
And on the way home we introduced the kids to "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen. :)
