This day I took my kids to one of my favorite places in the world. A lovely park in Enon, Virginia that recently was renamed, but the new name means nothing to me because it will always be Point of Rocks Park. I have been going there since I was seven. It was very close to all the houses I lived in through most of my life. I have good memory after good memory of it. It is even where my husband proposed to me under a moonlit sky. This was a hot summer day, but we packed some water bottles and headed out for a hike through the trails and marsh walk. It was a lovely day and my not quite 2 year old daughter did really great. She kept up with us even though her little legs got tired and I had to carry her some. This is us sitting on an overlook toward the end of the hike. Love my family, and love this day.
