In three short weeks, my only child is getting married! The planning (which began 2 years ago when they got engaged) is done and everyone is ready for a June wedding! She turned 27 last month, and yesterday came home to have a belated birthday celebration.
After a lovely dinner last night, followed by wedding chatter until midnight, we all got a good night’s sleep so we could go for a relaxing hike today. This was the first time my daughter had been to our favorite state park – Hungry Mother.
My husband and I go to Hungry Mother several times a year, either to hike, stay in a cabin, kayak on the lake, or just enjoy the town nearby. I was very excited to share this park with her and we had the perfect weather for it.
We took a trail that was fairly new to me and enjoyed a fantastic view of the highest peak in the park – Molly’s Knob.
I have been to the top of Molly’s Knob, which offers the best view in the park, but this scene is not too bad either.
I regret that it took me so long to discover hiking, but I’m glad Lori is enjoying it at a much younger age.
What a great way to celebrate her birthday, her upcoming wedding, and life!
