One Thanksgiving day a few years ago, we went hiking up Enchanted Rock. It was gorgeous, it was fun--all around a great family outing. That whole vacation deserves its own post series someday, actually. When back down at the bottom, there is a place you can walk through some serious cacti. I thought it would be hilarious to pick up Petunia and pretend to throw her in the prickly plants. Well, can you guess what happened? In the picture above, Mark captures the precise moment when several cactus thorns went in my right leg! Ouch! They were so sharp that they pinned my jeans to my legs and I was in pain until Mark, though dying of laughter, came to my rescue. That is a Memory!
