|The view from Rebecca's Rock|
Today, daddy and I wanted to do something nice for mom for Mother's Day. So we took her hiking somewhere extra-special! We went to a place along the Appalachian Trial that she named Rebecca's Rock many years ago because it doesn't really have a name. But it has a really nice view and she used to go there a lot when she was younger and lived closer to the mountains. She hadn't been back there in almost 20 years!
I had never been hiking on this particular trail before, and I loved smelling the mountain smells and eating the mountain grass. It was so nice to get out into the woods, and mom loves the mountains. We heard lots of birds and mom enjoyed seeing all of the blooming wildflowers. We were so tired afterwards that mom and I slept most of the way home!
She said that taking her hiking to her own special place was the best Mother's Day gift we could give her.
