For Mother's Day, we all went for a hike up to Great Falls. It was the first beautiful day in months and months, so the park was very crowded. It didn't help that so many people decided to pay the $5 entry fee by credit card, leading to a line of cars at least a mile long waiting to get into the park. (The line to get in was even longer on our way out.) Here are some random pictures, some with notes, some without.
Here's a point where everyone goes to look at the falls, and you can look across the river to see people on the Maryland side doing the same:
The falls were raging because of all the rain we've had in the last month and a half:

Mother's Day would have been a little nicer except that my brother spent the night last night. He called at 9 pm to say that he'd be arriving after midnight. I had things I wanted to do in the morning that didn't involve being a hostess, and he wasn't exactly taking hints that he should head home. We finally ate lunch, put on sunscreen, got our water bottles, and hustled him out the door as we were leaving to go hiking.
I hope all the mothers reading this had a great Mother's Day. I'll be back with some knitting content later this week :)
