Beautiful Fall Day

This past week we couldn't have asked for more perfect weather. During the week the boys and I tried to play outside as much as possible, and Sunday after (another) disappointing Colts loss, we headed to Mounds State Park in Anderson for a little hike. Karter was our "leader" and thoroughly enjoyed leading the way!!

Unfortunately, we haven't done much hiking this year. So this was Kaden's first ride in the big backpack carrier, and next year he will probably be too big for it. Poor Kristoffer got quite the workout with Kado strapped to his back. Have you ever seen cuter thighs!?

He enjoyed his ride with Daddy!

We are really into Jake and the Neverland Pirates around here, so Karter (aka Jake) used his treasure map to explore the state park and found this cool treasure!

Gorgeous day!

The hike was beautiful and the smell of fall was intoxicating. That smell is my favorite thing about fall!

Sometimes Captain Hook (aka Kristoffer) stole the map away from Jake!

He was such a great hiker!

I am in the midst of a craft project that requires A LOT of acorns. So along the way Karter would stop and help my pick up acorns.

Kristoffer kept commenting on the beautiful sky next to the wonderful fall colors!

After our hike we refueled with a little picnic and then rounded out our evening with a little playtime. It was the most perfect fall day with my boys!!
