Gorgeous Afternoon

I did school with the children this morning and then Dan suggested we take a drive and go to a place that we love but haven't been to since last summer.

We went to the Hudson River, only further north this time. What a gorgeous day!

Look at those views.

See those mountains. That is the beginning of the Catskill Mountains where I grew up.

Nathan and Stephen either looking for fish or talking about how polluted the river is! Actually, they have cleaned up the Hudson and it's not as bad as it was many years ago.

Emily practiced skipping rocks. She threw her whole body into it - lol!

Isn't this a sweet picture? This couple were sitting side by side, drawing the Hudson.

Nathan took our picture and he said he tried not to get my double chin. Nice - huh?!
Dan decided he was going to be Mr. Serious for this one.

There was a huge hill that Emily just had to run down. Don't you wish you still had that carefreeness that children have?

Just beautiful! See that little speck in the foreground on the right. That's Emily way down the hill :-).
