Long Weekends

Aren't long weekends the best?!

Saturday evening we grilled steaks after swimming at the lake.

Sunday after church, we headed to Croft State Park
and went for a hike on their mile and a half nature trail.

Just some cool growth in the woods. So many different things in one tiny little open spot.

A cool lizard. Immediately after seeing this lizard we saw a black snake heading toward this little guy.
I was afraid to see what was going to happen once that snake saw him in this tree trunk.
Can you say "dinner time"?

A pretty purple flower.

After the hike we followed a little trail, walking about 10 minutes out to the river
 where we found a ton of other families scattered across the rocks,
wading in a cool stream. 

A pool of tadpoles. There were hundreds of them... So cool!

On Monday we did nothing.
 We stayed in the house and relaxed.
 It was just what we needed.
Later that evening, we took the kids to park while the hubster and I went for run.
I was amazed that I was able to go as far as I did.
It was a great start to new week.
