Lovely Weekend

After dinner last Friday, my sweet husband loaded us all up in the van and whisked the family to a secret destination.  We wound around the valley and up the foothills until we stopped here:


This is a bluff overlooking Boise and the greater Treasure Valley.  Aren't the springy green foothills lovely?



What a treat to get a new perspective on our new home.  It's sometimes hard to appreciate the beauty around us until we stop and look.


It was a perfect day.  I looked around at the beauty below, and the beauty on these faces that I love and just felt happy.


I couldn't have picked a better way to finish a busy week.

Is this Table Rock? Our daughter lives in Boise and I get there from MI about once a year. I love the sky thereQQ

What interesting landscape. How were all those tight-knit little green hills formed? Is it glacial or something?

Gorgeous family pictures by the way. It's nice to see them all together like that!

@Marie in MichiganYes, it is Table Rock. I wasn't sure until I asked my hubs. We're still learning our way around here. :)
