It makes me happy when my kids are as enthralled with the beauty of the earth as I am.
But then again, I guess it’s not hard to be overcome with how knock-dead gorgeous the earth is up at Bloomington Lake (up in the mountains by where we stay at Bear Lake).
Oh boy, right?
At first Lu was a little hesitant about coming on this hike with us. But once she got there she could hardly stop admiring and picking the gorgeousness up there.
…and pick a million bouquets on the way:
I was wimpy this year…it was the very first time I’ve been there and not done the jump. Mostly it was because I just decided not to give in to peer pressure this time 🙂
Lu surprised me by begging with her puppy dog eyes (and a lot of whining) to jump in. The wind had come up by then and we didn’t bring her swimsuit so I cajoled her to believe that next year we would remember her swimsuit (I was too nervous about whether she had enough upper body strength to hold on because there are lots of rocks down there which is pretty scary if you don’t jump at the right time). But go Lucy for being so daring!
