For the grand finale of spring break, we climbed Beech Mountain on Acadia National Park on Sunday. I feel like I can't possibly talk about our day without excessive, annoying superlatives and exclamation marks, so I'll just show you.
Reed and Skyler climbed all the way up by themselves, their very first mountain climb. Up, up, up they go.
At every turn, Skyler kept saying: "This is so amazing."
"This is such a great walk, mommy." "Sure is a sunny day!" "I'm so tired from all this walking!" "I don't want to go home!" "I want to stay on this mountain for da whole day!" "Wow, what a lovely day, mom." "That sure is a beautiful tree!"
Check out the view on the way down.
Reed also told me he really wanted to throw rocks in a lake before we drove home, and so, Sam found us a perfect spot to do just that. And that will be part 2 of our very best day.
