"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Last Picnic of the Season

For Labor Day, we hopped in the old 'burban for an impromptu drive and picnic up a somewhat nearby canyon. The drive was gorgeous and high in the hills we could see touches of autumn creeping in the tops of some of the trees.

Before we started, though, we had to wait too long while Dad topped off the fluids.

Luckily, the warm food was still just warm enough when we stopped at a frequented camp site to lunch.

Our impromptu picnic consisted of delicious burritos and tacos; it couldn't have been planned any better!

Then we finished off the pleasant afternoon with a ride on a canyon dirt road that was so bumpy that the side mirror broke off. There's nothing quite like exploring together as a family!
