I love spending time with my children in the forest, by water or on bike rides, exploring and being in the wide open. When we are out among the trees we get swept up into a beautiful space of companionship. We revel in the small things like budding trees, flowering plants and the joy of running and splashing through water. This past weekend was a weekend that allowed itself to this sort of adventure. We walked, climbed, swam in a cold lake and enjoyed each others company. In these moments I revel in my children and I love being a mother.
