GratiTuesday - A Glorious Day Outside

My family kept asking me what I wanted to do for Mother's Day.  After experiencing beautiful weather throughout the majority of our Pennsylvania trip, I just wanted to spend the day together and outside.

So we did.  After church, we headed to a fun mall with lots of restaurants, where we had lunch outside on a patio under a big umbrella.

We walked around the mall a bit, where my men goofed around near the fountains.

My husband needed new sunglasses, so we shopped for those.  The clowning around continued!

After that we headed to a nearby park and hiked on a new trail.  It traveled along the river for quite some time, which made the kids more than a little happy.  They made boats out of bark and leaves and had fun throwing rocks into the water.

We played in a few trees, too.

All in all, this was a very fun day.  Even more so in hindsight, since our bout with the chicken pox began that night and we've had to spend most of our time indoors ever since.

Everyone's finally on the mend and nearly ready to resume normal life, but in the meantime?  That was a really awesome day.
