I've been missing in action for a long time because I've been spending a lot of time on my crochet blog - The Little Monkey Shop.
We recently took some family time to relax in a cabin in the woods along the TN/KY border. We go to these cabins often to just relax. We actually really hope it rains so that we can sit on the front porch and watch the storm, read a book, crochet, and drink coffee.
We also like to do some hiking, wading in the creek, skipping rocks, catching minnows, and just enjoying being out in nature.
At Pickett State Park we found found a trail that led to a natural bridge and cave. Such a cool natural formation!
And our hikes often end like this - Cade getting a ride one someone's hip. Emma offered him a ride without him asking - I love to see the little ways they love on him!
During our relaxing on the front porch, while the little guy was playing with his bristle block toys (current favorite toys!), I was able to finish up my Gypsy Poncho I've been working on. The woods around the cabin created a unique place to take pictures of the finished poncho.
I also worked up this Woodlands Bonnet for a customer while swinging on the porch swing! My first bonnet crochet pattern!
I highly recommend taking a little time to get away and relax! The best part is getting up in the cooler mornings and reading on the front porch rocking chair with a side of coffee, taking in natures beauty.
