Fall in Minnesota. Bright colors. Crunchy leaves under foot. Fresh cool air.
Us. A family (almost) of four. A 2 year old who will throw rocks in water for hours.
Yesterday we headed down the road a bit to historic Vermillion Falls. The river flows right into the Mississippi and has beautiful trails to hike down to the water. So…. most of the edges were not child friendly, but Ethan has a nice balance of a healthy fear of heights and independent determination. So we conquered the hike well!
The water was beautiful, and about 30 minutes of rock-throwing later, we ate some snacks with dirt-filled hands, runny noses, and the beautiful view.
And being 27 weeks pregnant….I was pretty proud of myself for doing all the activity and LOVING it the entire time!
Some quick field photos too….because I just couldn’t resist.
And yes. You should spend your next free evening here, because it’s beautiful. Oh, and bring us too. We’ll be going again soon!
