    Maplewood State Park

    I love this park so much that we ended up going three times while visiting family in MN!

    The first time we ended up just taking the twins and my niece.

    This is the woodland trail loop.

    It is under a mile but so pretty!

    I may have told my husband that I was not going home…

    Minnesota in the fall is hard to leave!

    My adorable niece.

    For the second visit, we had all of our kids and came into the park from the south.

    This is a small portion of the Star Loop trail.

    Next, we walked some of this beautiful trail near Maplewood Church.

    I had actually decided to try a family picture with this stunning backdrop but a birthday party started.

    I could not bring myself to get out my tripod and set everyone up for a family pic with an audience.

    amnDSC_9469 amnDSC_9472 amnDSC_9492

    We drove into in the park a bit more and ended up stopping to take this pic on a side road.

    amnDSC_9511 amnDSC_9530

    I love how it looks like everyone is cooperating and having fun but in real life, I had one mad at me and glaring for most of the pics…

    On our 3rd visit, we had just the girls(the boys opted to stay and play with cousins).

    We hiked on the Ironwood Trail.

    amnDSC_1058 amnDSC_1062 amnDSC_1067

    I can’t get over how pretty the woods were.

    The girls decided to throw leaves at Nick on the hike back to the vehicle.

    amnDSC_1239 amnDSC_1248

    Love these.

    This is actually laughter with a good bit of fear mixed in.

    They were not all that happy about him pulling them.

    The girls got to meet Nick’s Grandma while up.

    This was really important since she went to Heaven the next month.

    I am so glad they got to know her.

    I took too many to share in one post!
