Here's one way to have a perfect summer day:
Get up early on a Saturday morning. Pack the car with water and snacks.
Plan a hike in the Mark Twain National Forest, or your local beauty spot.
Make sure the hike is some distance away so you'll have plenty of time in the car to talk.
Rest your hand on his thigh as he drives.
Smile at your child still asleep in the backseat.
While you are hiking stop often and take pictures of things that make your heart sing.
When you get home, relive your beautiful day as you look at your photos.
Turn one of them into a desktop background so it will
remind you over and over of a perfect day.
This is the desktop background I made, and I'd like to share it with you.
Just click the image to see the full-size version. Then, right-click and download the file to use for your desktop background, or any other way you might like.
Wishing you many perfect summer days of your own.
