The kids had Fall Break last week and after running ourselves ragged all fall with the girls playing on the 6th grade basketball team and AJ playing JV soccer, we made the unanimous decision to stay home for the week.
We kicked off the Fall season with a fun bonfire and hayride at church.
On Tuesday, Dad took a day off of work to do what the Kinnells like to do best - hiking!
We headed a bit south of our home and fueled up at the Bluebird Cafe in Stanford. Yum!!!
Next we went over to Shaker Village to do some hiking. Shaker Village is only located about 20 minutes south of us, but none of us have ever hiked any of the trails around the village.
This trail lead down from Shaker Village to the river, a round-trip of 3 miles.
As we hiked, we could just make out High Bridge (at first)
Essie & Chloe can always find something to climb.
A much better view of High Bridge
