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.
