All in all it was a much needed day. My Grandson and his little friend were with us, my Daughters and the little friend’s Dad. The boys started out running to and fro-grabbing as many pinecones and rocks as they could hold. They walked holding hands –the older boy leading the younger-exploring the mud and sticks as they went along. By the end of the journey the rocks and pinecones were back in the woods and the boys were on the shoulders of their perspective parents. The day was topped off with dinner, cake, presents and two very sleepy little boys.
