Uncle Tom's cabin

Our little family spent a long weekend in the mountains at Uncle Tom's cabin. Edmund and I had small pursuits: I did a great deal of reading, while Edmund spent time playing with toys and learning to crawl. Douglas and his friend, Josh, hiked to the summit of Long's Peak (seen on the right in the photo, which was taken on the cabin balcony).

Mountain View

Who is like the LORD our God,
the One who sits enthroned on high,
who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?

[Psalm 113:5-6]

Edmund was fascinated by the aspen trees. Whenever the wind stirred their leaves, they became a vision of shimmering greenery. Any form of playful lighting is totally riveting to this almost eight-month-old baby. :)

It's a beautiful spot and very special to Douglas and his family. I'm glad to have had the chance to see it all!
