Patapsco State Park

We want Spring. We want it now. So today we headed out to Patapsco State Park on a mission. We wanted to find a place to go camping later in the season (they have tent sites and cabins), but more importantly, we wanted Spring. Admittedly, we are pushing things a bit. There is barely any green to be found. But still, it's in the air.

As we started to explore the trails, we discovered some amazingly steep hills. This trip is not for the stroller set, but my kids are officially big kids now. The twins (age 8 now) are totally up for the challenge. We slowly edged down to the river.

Brilliant move, if I do say so myself. We stopped on the way there for some fried chicken and corn on the cob.

When did she get so tall?

After much playing, and exploring the railroad tracks, and maybe a little more playing it was back up again.

 Of course we had to vere off the trail a bit to see a tiny waterfall.

And one more shot, just to prove I was there too. Me and my gorgeous kids.
