Hike Trip with the Kids to Nerstrand State Park

Meadow and I had so much fun hiking and geocaching last weekend, we decided to do it again.

I was busy photographing for a project in Lake City.

Our state park pass expires at the end of the month so we decided on Nerstrand State Park. A short drive from Minneapolis I'd always wanted to go. 

I love that they had this natural playground.

First we wanted to see the waterfall.


Little hiker.


The waterfall was a lot smaller than I expected but it was open for free play.

I let the kids play for awhile.

Then we found another area to play.


Mr Independent had to hike back himself.

That's my stubborn little guy.

We took a lunch break before geocaching. 

Meadow didn't believe me she had smoothie on her face.

Theo either.



We finished our day by hiking almost the whole park to find the cache. Too bad Scott couldn't have joined us.

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.
