Monday we got to have David all to ourselves for an entire day, and the weather proved absolutely gorgeous. We headed for "The Great Falls," as Meg would say...
I don't think I've ever been there before in early spring. The water was ferocious. Majestic, but scary. I watched my babies very carefully when they ventured near the guardrails to survey the falls.
But actually, all three of them were happiest climbing around on the rocks at the first overlook. It was a 100% natural playground, I tell ya! Miss Esme was feeling extremely independent.
(Matthew was so active we didn't even get a decent picture of him on the rocks! He doesn't stop to pose, like some other people we could mention.)
Okay, so he does pose sometimes...
Here, just to prove that I really was there, is one Matthew took of me.
In this one you can see one of Meg's interesting physical features; she's double jointed in her elbows.
All in all, it was a perfectly lovely, memorable, gift of a family day, and full of promise for many spring and summer days to come!
