the glorious exhale

I'm not sure what kind of magic resides in a simple walk, but I can attest to it's power. Probably one of the greatest parts of our little family times are our mini hikes and walks. It doesn't seem to matter if we are exploring a wooded trail or taking in the expanse of fields, the effect is still the same: a giant glorious exhale. And the best part about it is that it is so very simple... you just put one foot in front of the other.

And you can't beat the things kids say when your out there...
In fact, this is what Lavender said she saw in the trees:
a duck
the mountain
a pond
and a sailboat

--- I don't know what trees she was looking at that hold such marvels, but I sure wish I could see the world like she does sometimes.
