We decided the eve
of the 'grand finale' of the surgeries should be a less than stressful day. We had been promising Nicholas a family day for quite some time and this definitely fit the definition.
On a friend's recommendation, we opted for Scott's Run in McLean. It has quite the reputation, as apparently the land, known as the Burling Tract, was barely saved from being a housing development back in 1970. We are grateful that it was as not only are there plenty of other areas in which to build, but this is a gorgeous piece of land. We are thrilled that it was left untouched with the exception of the trails.
It was a gorgeous day, an amazing (okay, and tiring) hike and the perfect way to end the weekend. I almost forgot what waits for me tomorrow at noon...
