On Sabbath we went up to the NC Arboretum. 465 acres of untainted bliss. Acres of woodsy trails to walk along, lots of beautiful flowers and gardens.... it was SO relaxing and peaceful. Something that we really needed after last weeks hectic-ness. I love the woods and the mountains. I told Mike that I wouldn't mind just building a little cabin right in the middle of all that wonderful acreage! The air was so fresh and clean. Just lovely! Miles for the kids to run and explore.(just so long as they don't get lost, I'm o.k!) We had a fun picnic in the back of our truck. We got out feeling quite avacado smeared, but it was fun just the same. :) We saw the neat Bonsai exhibit that was there as well. It supposedly is the largest exhibit in the U.S.A. It was quite remarkable!
At any rate, it was just what we needed and I'm looking forward to next weekend as we're headed on another excursion!
