We took a few trips to our local state park this week, and it was amazing. There were deer walking around the parking lot and hawks (or eagles?) flying overhead. We found a secluded place to pick-nick and the kids ran around and explored to their hearts content… while I took pictures, of course! Here are a few I can share with you:
The first day we went, we went a little too close to sunset and weren’t able to make it all the way up the trail. I took this picture on the way down – I didn’t get many, because we were in a huge hurry to get back to the car before sunset!
Bitty (our youngest daughter) spent most of her time at the park chasing butterflies and trying to catch birds. If you know Bitty, this won’t surprise you. :)
It didn’t take long before all that running around caught up with them!
(Yes, those are my daughters dirty feet, and yes, we let them run around barefoot!) ;)
I took about 7,000 shots of the kids together, trying to get a good group photo. I ended up saving two. I took this one hoping to use it as my header (replacing the picture of the bird at the top of my blog), but didn’t make it wide enough. Oh well, we’ll just have to go back and try again! :)
There were deer everywhere, we were able to pull up just a few yards from them!
We saw many hawks (eagles?) over head, and eventually got a picture of one. For those of you who know about birds – can you tell me what this is?
At the end of the day, we crossed the ferry to get home. It was the first time we’d ever gone over the ferry, and we got a bit lost after crossing the other side, but it was a great adventure!
It was a great time for everyone, and we’re planning another trip back soon!
