Thankful Thursday

There's a place by my mom's house that I've always referred to as "the crick." It's one of the most beautiful, relaxing places I've ever been to. When I was little, my mom would bring my brothers and I down to the crick to feed the ducks and to take a walk. It also holds a special meaning to me because it's where the husband proposed.

On one side of the crick is a stone and dirt path, and on the other is a hiking trail. There's always a different route you can take, and it never ever gets boring!

Today, I am thankful for spending time at the crick with my brother and mom.

Since the weather was so beautiful last weekend when I was at my mom's house, my brother, me and my mom headed down to the crick to do something we haven't done in such a long time....feed the ducks!

Kevin and I hanging out on the ledge.

We brought popcorn and raisin bread, which the ducks seemed to enjoy.

The sun was so bright that I could hardly see the pictures I was taking. It was basically point, click, and hope for the best!

Most relaxing place ever.

Kev and I took a break to smile for my mom.

Action shot!

I truly enjoyed spending this time with the fam. Since the weather's getting nicer, I'm sure there will be more visits to this beautiful place!

Question of the Day:
What are you thankful for today?

Until next time!

That place look really pretty!

I have a stream in the woods behind my house that I used to go to when I was little. I should take a trip back there one day. I haven't been there in years!

Very pretty! We have a pond in the large park next to our home. I love seeing all the kids outside feeding the ducks!

I am thankful for being employed, even if it takes all my patience sometimes!
