Some keep the Sabbath…

One Sunday night recently, we headed out to the Abilene State Park for the evening.

We hiked.

Looking for wildlife -- it's always important to accessorize when hiking. Molly brought along her purse.

Then we had a picnic and collected leaves to do some leaf rubbings.

It was really an absolutely perfect evening.  (At this point, my husband may remind me that the older child was a grump for much of the hike and dinner, but her mood turned around with leaf rubbings, and we really did have a delightful time.)
