Clover was up early making ginger molasses cookies for our friend Allison. We were all feeling excited about meeting Allison and Felix for a nature walk, but Clover was really anxious to go. She loves to give gifts!
We met at a state park and took a long hike around the lake. The leaves are so beautiful right now.
We saw lots of beautiful ducks and geese, a cute little turtle, and a tiny snake.
The trail that we walked was such a nice combination of flat and hill-y, smooth and gnarled with roots, sunny and cloudy. We had the perfect October weather, full of breezes sending red and golden leaves swirling to the ground.
When we got home, Tim helped the kids with one of my favorite Fall leaf crafts - leaf rubbings!
