Saturday morning exercise

This morning Grace and Hannah and I took a walk around the neighborhood. On the way I stopped to take a picture of one of my favorite trees in our subdivision.

As you can see, it is a pretty large and old oak tree. It is remarkably healthy looking considering how old it must be.

How old is it? Well, I'm not sure--but it is not entirely up up to me. You see, there is a plaque at the base of the tree. (you've got to love trees with plaques.)

The plaque reads: "THE SANFORD OAK, circa 1750. Swamp white oak (scientific name I can't properly type). 15" in circumference and __ high. May this grand oak sustain nature and encourage hope for many years to come."

After I got home, I immediately took a small bike ride through another part of the neighborhood with Sarah.

Now it's close to time for lunch, grocery shopping, and whatever comes next.
