Saturdays are for exploring.

Saturdays are for exploring.

[Well, this Saturday isn’t, seeing as we’re all feeling pretty terrible, but you know – in general! :-D]

Recently we’ve had the happy experience of going on some little expeditions following our usual “bagel morning” AM routine. We visited Prickett’s Fort State Park and Valley Falls State Park in the past few weeks. Both are less than an hour from here, so it makes for a nice bite-sized adventure that leaves room for our non-negotiable afternoon naps. 😉

Ezra thinks its too early for adventuring. ;-)

And, I would be remiss not to mention the enormous TROUT that Nels caught the Saturday before Mother’s Day…:) The kids were delighted to get to see it early Sunday morning (before it became our Mother’s Day lunch! LOL)

It’s been fun sinking our teeth into West Virginia and discovering the beauty to be found here.

The outdoor adventures have been fun, but mama is missing the big city, so PITTSBURGH here I come! 😉

Happy weekending, friends. ❤
