Fun in the Fall

Brendon, Kaden, Me and Caitrin posing on a log in the wood of Tippecanoe River State Park.

A couple of weeks ago, we took our annual trip to Tippecanoe River State Park in Winamac, IN. Every year we hiking along the trails in the woods when the leaves start turning colors. The first thing we do is climb the firetower. This year Brendon was the only one who made it to the top. During our walk we stopped to pose for photos (taken with our phones/iPod). We made full circle back the firetower and stopped to see some horses that were hitched on a post. One of the owners so graciously let Caitrin sit on one horse and the other lead Brendon around the area on the other.

Starting a new tradition this year, my mom took Brendon and Caitrin to a nearby nursery for a hayride into a pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin. Kaden wasn't feeling well that day, so we stayed home and waited for the pumpkins to arrive. Picking pumpkins wasn't the only thing they did at the nursery.
