Mother's Day

Hickory Nut Falls

"Other things may change, but we start and end with family"
-Anthony Brandt

Today was such a special day.
It started with me waking up before everyone else and watching "The Secret Life of Bees" Not as good as the book, but a guilty pleasure none the less.

Then the the kids and I took a little day trip and hiked to Hickory Nut Falls.

Here are some things we saw along the way...

A little lady bug

Snakes in the grass

The waterfall was absolutely beautiful. It is over 400 feet high. While we were there, a woman told me that a young toddler fell off the top of the waterfall and died last year. What a tragedy. It didn't help that my toddler (ok she is a little bit bigger than a toddler) was running around with no concept of sharp rocks...

The best thing about Mother's Day is being a mother.
