During last week's Spring Break, we decided to stay close to home. We've always loved hiking and getting outdoors and now that I'm getting over "my kids are going to wander off and get eaten by a bear!" phobia, we decided to check out South Mountains State Park for a day trip. This park was AMAZING! We had such a great time and the kid's had a blast! We hiked the 3 mile trail that lead us to High Shoals Falls. It was a pretty cool hike with lots of rocks to climb over, a river to follow and at the end a BUNCH of stairs leading to the top of the falls. Once we reached the top, we had a mandatory (for mom:) rest break and then headed back down. We found this neat little swimming area and although the water was freezing, Abby and Carter did some swimming. We took a ton of pictures (I know, that's a shocker! lol) so here are a few from our day.
