Falling for Fall

We have had a beautiful week here in Pennsylvania. The trees are turning and the weather has been low 70s with just that touch of cool when the sun disappears. Yesterday afternoon, Chad got home a little early, so we picked up some Subway and went to Parker Dam State Park.

Megan found the whole experience to be so exciting that her hair stood up on end!

After our picnic dinner, we (I say we because we all did take turns crawling through the tubes and going down slides) played at the playground.

Then, we (I say we, but Megan got carried a fair portion) hiked around the lake. She thought tramping through the leaves was great fun and found lots of things to explore including the pine cone seen below. She also thought the gravel path at another point on the hike was great and stopped to eat a few handfuls.

See what I mean about a great fall!

After our hike, we went back to the playground for another round. Then went to the nature center for an up close look at some stuffed animals of both the synthetic and the once living and breathing variety.
