We had plans to go see Nic's dad (Grandpapa) at his house on Sunday evening but some of the family was sick so we picked him up and explored a new walking trail instead! We expected it to be a dirt hiking trail but found a beautiful paved path in its place which was perfect for Liam. Last time we took him hiking, he tripped over every rock and pot hole possible and ended up with a cut on his knee. I have a feeling this one will now be our first choice. ;)
Liam and his Papa!
Liam's favorite part were the bridges. Of course the one thing that makes me the most nervous because he has to squeeze his head between the slats and peer over the edge to see the bottom! Part way through the walk he kept pulling us back to the beginning, I think because he would have rather spent all of his time on the bridge instead. haha
The leaves on the trees were already changing for fall and it made the walk that much more beautiful! Liam giggled whenever they would crunch underneath his shoes and he would do his hop skippety little dance that he does to hear even more of them. I kept joking with Nic that I reeeeally wanted to bring a bag of yellow leaves home to decorate our front porch with but he wouldn't let me. ;) Something about all of the spiders we'd bring in the car from the bag of leaves. I don't know where he would have gotten THAT idea. Ahem, it's happened before with pine cones, oops! haha
This was only one of a few different paths/trails up there and so I definitely want to go back and explore some more. Besides, I can't wait to see what Cherry Springs looks like a few weeks from now when ALL the trees are changing colors. :) Thanks for the fun Sunday walk Papa!
