Mother's Day Hike and Picnic

Later on today (after post-party recuperation) Super Monkey came out with me and my family to celebrate Mother's Day. My Mom requested a hike and picnic for the celebration modus operandi, so today we ventured out to Cooper Mill and the Black River Trails. Let's begin.

Here Super Monkey is at the start of the trail with the old mill in the background (sorry it's a bit blurry):

Along the hike we saw so many pretty sights, like wildflowers, ducklings, and beautiful tall trees!

After a bit of walking, SM waited for us while we took a rest.

For our amusement he decided to play around acting like a regular earth monkey, as opposed to the super alien monkey he really is. Here he is hanging from a tree:

When we finally reached the clearing we spread out our food and had a great big picnic! Super Monkey and I stuffed ourselves!

Another fun day!

Thanks, Kelly!

Thanks, Aar. We did all have fun. I couldn't get the deer (sadie) to stay still long enough to let Super Monkey get on. You know how she gets when she's in the woods - up, up, and away!
