Yesterday we woke up bright and early and headed to the mountains to do some hiking with the kids. The weather was just beautiful! Very un-July like. The morning air had a crispness to it and the shade was just lovely. We took full advantage! A picnic was packed in the trunk and off we headed. The kids were so excited to see the state park.
The trail was a pretty easy one. A little over a mile around the lake. We started slow and will eventually work our way to more challenging trails. We explored trees and watched turtles sun bathe on rocks. We listened to the birds and enjoyed the nature that surrounded us.
Our appetites quickly grew and we settled in for some sandwiches and fruits and then headed to the playground. The day was awesome. We hope to hit another bigger mountain and bigger state park in 2 weeks. This one includes waterfalls we can swim in. =) How exciting. I can't wait!!!
