Turkey Run S.P. Saturday, Aaron worked on our back door (and that's all I shall say on the subject here...), so I was trying to figure out how to keep the twins occupied all day. Enter Nay.... Nay is a really good friend, who loves to be out in nature... Nay invites us to go to Turkey Run S.P. in Western Indiana.... She's cool with the twins, I'm cool with her two dogs, and off we go!

....and the pictures don't really do justice to how absolutely PERFECT the day went or how gorgeous the day was. I think it's safe to say that Nay and I were kind of nervous about how all our extra creatures would do.... But everyone was GREAT! We had minimal whining or bad behavior from both the twins and the dogs... and only one scary moment when trying to get up a waterfall.

....what surprised me most was just how awesome the twins were with getting dirty. They can be very skittish at times, so the fact that the trampsed through the puddles and got their whole bodies wet in the stream really impressed me.

....another thing that surprised me was just how much I enjoyed being out in nature. Even with two kindergarteners and two young puppies in tow, I was totally at peace. It was a great time, at a much NEEDED time.

I am so glad you all had a good time. It was just what I needed. I do love to hug me some trees. :)

We need to go again this summer and plan a camp trip for this fall. I want to show you the real "140 steps" trail.
