A wild and wonderful family day

 Life has been so hectic it was time to slow down.  We heard the leaves were at their peak in West Virginia so off we went to explore Coopers Rock State Forest, near Morgantown, West Virginia.  It ended up being a perfect day!

 Cooper's Rock Giant was an interesting find....
 Our chef fed us well!
 The overlook is a must-see!

 Hiking Rattlesnake Trail was was the most technically difficult trail we have attempted with the kids.  Lots of rock formations to climb (be still my mom heart!)
 Yes, that is straight up!

 Rock City Trail is interesting also.
We are so glad we took the time to explore this new to us location and be amazed at the Fall colors this year!

What's been going on?

 It's becoming harder and harder to keep up with this blog...probably because of the amount of time we spend away from home these days.  Ahhh, we fondly remember the days when the kids were little and we couldn't wait to get OUT of the house.  Now, it seems, with sports, activities, and general life, we don't seem to be IN the house.  How times change with the season you are in.  All I can say is ENJOY whatever season you happen to be in right now.  Anyway, wrapping up September (I know, we are well into October) with a visit to the Children's Museum during Rad Days (Pittsburgh's free museum days).  The museum wasn't too crowded and we enjoyed ourselves.

 The Aviary, on the other hand, was overrun with people, so all we were able to see was the one bird that happened to be outside.  We didn't mind, since we've been to the Aviary before.
 And wrapping up with Darrell's birthday.
We're praying that you are enjoying this Autumn season!
