I do love a gorgeous tree. Yes, I'm a tree hugger. My son Ridley had Friday off school, so my husband Matt took the day off and we grabbed a buddy of Ridley's and all headed to Fort Boonesboro for some camping. And by camping I mean staying in our air conditioned camper with a bathroom in it.
Did I mention that I cheated and didn't even stay? Well, I didn't. It's too hard for me to get comfortable when I'm trying to sleep. So I drove Ridley's friend back and headed home. A cramped camper with two sweaty boys just isn't going to cut it for a few months. But I had a nice relaxing time reading alongside hubby while the boys got muddy.
I've added some tree photos, both old and new, from Fort Boonesboro. I love getting up close and personal and sort of grabbing the tree's personality. Those old trees near the fort have seen a lot and their faces show it.
Thank you for bearing with my obsession with tree photography. After my boys returned on Saturday we headed to a birthday party for a lovely seven-year-old girl. It was a pool party, and I'm sad to say that it will probably be the last time any of us are anywhere near a pool this year. The summer goes so fast. All in all, it was a great weekend. Thank you for letting me share it with you.
