We took a break from all the household chores that love to ensnare us on the weekend, and went on a fall hike. You just have to put it on the calendar sometimes, like you would a doctor appointment, or it simply won't ever happen!
This is the time of year I wish would last for at least six months but, alas, it's over all too quickly. We are lucky to get three weeks of it! So we try to savor what we can.
It was a three mile hike and so we had to bribe the kids with hot chocolate (mochas for the adults) and chewy ginger cookies. It worked! They made it!
