This past week my honey told me that he had been asked to help some friend set up a home network and help them install their new phone system, and a few other little things. And that they had invited the family to come also. They live in the foothills just a few miles from us, and they live right on the river. Our two youngest daughters and I agreed that it would be fun to go. I had the thought that I could collect pinecones for our holiday decorations (but they have a pesky squirrel that has chewed up most of the pinecones), and the girls wanted to hike and explore. We had such a great morning! I wanted to share a few photos from our morning.
