Day 17: Happy family day

Day 17: Happy family day

Good morning Challengers. Happy Family Day. Ironically for the first time since it's inception I am not with my family, well I am just not with my kids. I'm with my mom, so I guess you could say I'm with the OG family.

Yesterday was so busy that I thought, 'I don't want to write a post because I didn't go outdoors,' and I asked Robyn to do a guest post. Robyn said she was too busy and would do one for Day 18, and then to my relief I remembered I took a walk with Cathy in the morning! What a relief-I did go outdoors, I just forgot. (whew)

Challengers, I hope your family day is filled with family and fun. At our house sometimes the pressure of 'special' days makes us all so cranky we end up not even talking to each other, so just take it easy and remember to enjoy.

Your photo prompt for today-obviously family :)

Until tomorrow-have an outdoorsy day.

My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
