We had our first family outing with the babes the other day, and really what better way to start off than a drive through aspen grove? I'd like to think he would have enjoyed it immensely... if only he'd been awake - but I'm not complaining, the kid slept like a champ which meant we got to enjoy the woods and all of its goldeny goodness sans one very loud upset baby. Score. So we did what any normal family with a happy sleeping baby would do - we stopped, parked the car, hiked in a bit, and ate a bit of lunch. It was in a word, sublime. I'm not sure what it is about Autumn, but it kinda rocks.
