I knew EZ was anxious to try sitting on the 4-wheeler, but I of course worried that he would hurt his progress by putting pressure on his damaged sacrum. Much to my surprise he was able to ride, with all four grandchildren and a little help from an extra pain pill...and he loved every minute of it! We all know he's a big kid at heart.
These are the berries Nathan and Natalie picked with very specific instructions from them...they were to be used on ice cream for our dessert, which we gladly did!
Next the Nats were off to the garden to pick whatever was ripe. They found beans and tomatoes to bring in!
Tara took Nathan and Natalie for a long walk to see all the interesting things God created in the forest. They found a wild mushroom and enjoyed walking on the trails, big logs and rocks.
These blocks are over 50 years old, made by Pop-Pop for Ernie and his siblings when they were young. How special to see another generation at play with these simple wooden blocks, using their imagination and creativity to build "masterpieces"!
Tara's blog post, entitled "A Mountain of Memories", perfectly summarizes our time together on the mountain. Head there to read all about her childhood memories, complete with lots more pictures!
