Hawksbill Crag

Since shortly after moving here we have been wanting to do this hike. Because it isn't very close to us (two hours away, in quite a remote area) it took us a while to find the time. I did want to do it at dusk, but we ended up getting there a bit before then. It was still pretty.

Hawksbill Crag is the most photographed spot in Arkansas. My goal is to someday be there at sunrise...I think that would be the prettiest.

The kids were great hikers (it was just 1.5 miles each way) but Sadie was an annoying and annoyed passenger. She was so tired and grumpy and just doesn't enjoy being dragged around. I want to tell her to just go with it but then she screams at me. It must be hard being Sadie.

Regardless, it was a great day. I just wish we had gone a week or two sooner when the colors would have been a bit more brilliant.

Sadie turns 3

Sadie has been begging for her birthday for so many months and so many days and so many minutes... so we were thrilled when it was finally here.

It was a Sunday, and we had a regional broadcast, which was great for a lot of reasons but sad because she couldn't have a big deal made of her day at church.

Anyway, Sadie didn't care much, but was excited to be woken up with "Happy Birthday." She opened her presents and we had breakfast. We watched "Inside out" and some friends came over to sing and have cake and ice cream.

We sure love this spunky Sadie-girl!
