This past weekend we had the nicest weather. On Saturday it was about 67 degrees and sunny all day. We immediately took advantage and used every spare minute of that day for outdoor fun.
After we had stopped off at our favorite bakery/coffee shop we headed down to the beach at the shores of Lake Michigan. The waves were especially large that day and all of the surfers came out in full force. I took a ton of photos, but I'll show you those another time.
After we had our fill of watching the surfers we headed out to one of my favorite spots. It is a huge field and woodsy area with a bunch of different walking paths. A great spot to let the boys run wild.
While I was busy getting Grace into her sling the boys played a game of hide and seek in the tall grass.
"Where are the boys?" "There they are!"
After I got Gracie into her sling we were ready to go!And I was just thankful that I was able to have a little bit of my fall.
One of the paths we chose had a pretty little bridge with a tiny creek running under it. The boys had a good time throwing stones into the creek, as you would imagine.
They were so happy to be out racing around that they even stopped to let us snap a pic.
They boys found big sticks shaped like rakes and spent much of the time raking the entire path.
It was very tiring and after a while Ben needed a lift.
All the beautiful, multicolored leaves had already fallen off of the trees, but we still had some color. We found some bright red berries here and there.
