An Autumn Hike

We live in a gorgeous area here in our little community.  You leave the city and it is hills and forests everywhere.  One county over though, it is breath taking.  There is a state park there with views that make you think you've been transported to the mountains.  We were able to go hiking with some friends there this past Saturday.  We had missed the peak for the fall colors but it was still just awesome.

One of the littles fell asleep in the van so when we woke her to go hiking, she was not excited.  She spent 3/4 of the 1.5 mile hike in my arms or Daddy's.  Near the end she came to life and was a sport. Autumn Hiking
Peanut on the other hand walked the whole trail around this pristine lake. We found several trees that beavers had been working on and a few that they were successful at getting down. Autumn Hiking Autumn Hiking 
What a beautiful afternoon with friends. We ended it with a crock pot full of Irish Stout Beef Stew, Mashed Potatoes, and Pumpkin Cake back at our place. It would have been a perfect day if it hadn't ended with Peanut getting sick.

 I love this little family so much even when we don't all cooperate to have our picture taken!
