A perfect Saturday in October

On Saturday, we enjoyed another beautiful hike at "Dells of the Eau Claire State Natural Area". This park is breathtakingly beautiful. The hiking trails are full of interesting trees, rocks and a series of beautiful waterfalls. Thanks to Grandpa Dave for taking so many great pictures. He truly captured the beauty of the day. Here's Jack before going on our hike. He was excited to see all the rocks and waterfalls.

Jenny and Sofia looking over the cliff down at the river. This is right at the beginning of our hike and we were all still in aww over the view.

Grandpa Dave and Grandma Debbie. One of the few pictures that Dave was actually in. He was quite the photographer that day!

Jack and Sofia going under a fallen tree.

Dave spotted this great photo op! Jack was happy to be able to walk out onto the rocks.

Another great shot of Sofia, Nana and Auntie Jenny.

Look at the SIZE of this leaf! Jack and Sofie both found one of these huge leaves and they were both very excited.

Jack and Sofie crawling in the roots of a tree that were washed out by the recent flooding. Such fun things you can find on a hike.

Grandma Debbie at the end of our hike, holding the kids HUGE leaves.

One big pile of leaves and we all had to jump in.

Such a cute picture of Nana and Maddie.

After our hike we enjoyed a picnic and watched the kids play in the leaves. The weather was perfect and the kids were all happy. Who could ask for more?
