double-dose of fall fun

Since the weather was gorgeously crisp and sunny when I woke up yesterday morning, Dan and I decided to squeeze in a double-dose of fall fun after we finished our "to-dos" for the day, (cat to vet, farmer's market, co-op, etc.) We packed a picnic dinner, picked up Dan's brother, and drove east to Afton State Park. Since we had such a dry spring, the fall colors were definitely muted this year, but still beautiful! We enjoyed a 2-hour hike through the woods and prairie, and caught some beautiful views along the way!

After finishing up at the state park, we drove up the road to an apple orchard, and picked a second round of apples for the season! I was way too busy picking apples to take many pictures, but I did have to record Dan's love of goats:

I swear, that man has a special radar just for finding goats. Give Dan a goat within a 2-mile radius, and he'll find it and pet it! :)

After stopping back at the state park to eat our picnic supper, Dan drove our tired butts back to the city. Needless to say, Dan and I didn't do much last night, and hit the sack pretty early!
