Happy Earth Day, everybody! On Saturday we took some time with friends to enjoy Cunningham Falls, a beautiful state park fairly close to home. The half-mile gravel trail to the falls is very easy and leisurely, but it's the rock-hopping and little pools of minnows in the rocky stream above the falls that you don't want to miss. Johnnie walked a lot of the gravel trail by herself, then rode happily in the Ergo on her dad's back as he scrambled over the ancient stones. My favorite thing: stretching out and sunning on a huge warm rock like a walrus. Sometimes Maryland isn't such a drag after all.
A cheesy one for the scrapbook. (See Johnnie there in the back?)
Johnnie, our future park ranger, spent the whole day smiling, all tucked in like a little pappoose. I don't think she could've had a better day.
After a great day out in nature, we returned home to discover that some of the seeds I planted in the garden last Sunday have sprouted already. These are dwarf blue kale sprouts. We also have a whole thick row of lettuce sprouting and some broccoli and carrot shoots coming up too.
I'm going to go ahead and call this year's Earth Day a smashing success here at Thirtyeight20. What did you do this weekend?
