If there is one thing that I hope Hudson learns from his Dad and I, it is that little adventures are important. Whether escaping into nature's peaceful sanctuary or a big, bustling city, there is so much to experience in this beautiful world of ours.
Our Mother's Day tradition always includes a spontaneous endeavor. Just the three of us.
On Sunday we found ourselves winding down the beautiful Natchez Trace, under white fluffy clouds and abundant sunshine. Our destination was Tishomingo, Mississippi; Will couldn't wait to show off the natural beauty of the rolling hills, rushing streams, lakes, and waterfalls that dot the landscape of the Tishomingo State Park.
I couldn't have asked for a better day. Hudson sang "Eee-Iiii-Eeee-Iiiii-Oooooo" for much of the way there. We hiked through a dense forest, crossing a swinging bridge and cooling our hands in a fresh water spring. We saw real waterfalls and artificial bears. Yes, adventures were had on this Mother's Day. Great and wonderful adventures, never to be forgotten.
"I want to think again of dangerous and noble things. I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable and beautiful and afraid of nothing as though I had wings." - Mary Oliver
Stay frolicsome, Hudson. We have many more amazing adventures ahead of us.
