A Picnic on the Mountain

We had planned to take a drive to a waterfall and visitor's center, and then have a picnic before returning home.  Things came up throughout the day and we didn't get to leave as early as we wanted, so we stayed closer to home, and drove up to the Bighorns to find a picnic spot.
everyone likes cold fried chicken, cantalope, and chips

our picnic spot had a wide view

Some day we will have it easy. 
For now, we still change dirty diapers on blankets in the grass. 
And we have kids who throw sticks around dangerously close to parents.

Tyler was fearless walking around on the rocks. 
He wanted to keep hiking all night.

I smelled the fir trees and fresh mountain air and said something like "You don't know how much you love something until you aren't around it." 
Shawn said "Do you mean you don't know how much you miss something until you leave it?"
I think we are both still adjusting to our new life in Wyoming.  That is probably the most open and sincere thing he will ever say about leaving Lincoln and Montana.

  1. It will take some time to adjust, and then one day in the not too distant future, you'll realize that things are normal again, you have new friends, and you can deal with where you are. You might even have some new favorite things to do or places to visit. These trying times will barely be a memory.
    CUTE haircut btw Jackie.
    luv Jess
