Saturday was a purrrr-fect day for exploring and having fun with friends! Cool and sunny with a light breeze, we set out for a hike.After checking out Minnehaha Falls, we explored other paths at length to find marvelous sights, including Lock 1, a fun water park, carvings in the sand, graffiti, bridges, and trees with incredible roots.
A favorite haunt for my friend Jamie and I is Minnehaha Falls. It is considered favored even if we only get there once a year. We walk around, hunting down forget-me-nots, sit on a bench or the grass by Hiawatha and Minnehaha, check if the Falls are strong or not. We spend this time talking about life, questions, worries, what we are learning. I’m pretty sure we’ve both cried and we always find something to laugh about. There is always prayer and almost always food.
