Today I had a rare Sunday afternoon off.
My lovely husband took the opportunity to plan a family outing to the woods.
Our destination was William O'Brien State Park, about an hour north of Saint Paul, and it was beautiful there.
There were well-maintained trails, and we saw 3 caterpillars, the kids were ecstatic.
The columbine are in bloom, and they were everywhereThere is a small lake to the side of the Saint Croix river where the kids took a little dip.
Next time we will remember to bring swim suits.
Truly a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.
