Weekend of Swimsuits and Coats

Gotta love swimming and hiking in March in Indiana!

We enjoyed staying at the Clifty Falls State Park lodge for a few nights during Kevin’s spring break. Mostly we lounged around at the pool and hot tub, sat by one of the indoor fireplaces, ate good food, and played cards and Boggle. It rained a lot while we were there, but we did end up hiking a few trails one morning to see the falls.

One nice thing about this state park is that it’s close to Madison, Indiana (a touristy little town), and shopping! (Now you know what my idea of camping is—staying in a lodge and shopping!!)

We didn't hit up any antique stores (that's just how it goes when you have two preschoolers), but we did find a great little coffee shop with this really good mocha they called "Yin and Yang." Mmmm ... (Why do my blog posts always end up mentioning food? Sigh ...)

A hike up to the lookout tower.

Clara (8 months), wearing the swimsuit Meredith wore at 14 months!

I can't believe how long Meredith's hair is getting.

Clara gives the best baby kisses ever!!

Clara is not a morning person. I think she would have rather gone back to bed than take a hike!
