Pixley Falls State Park

 We finally had Daddy all to ourselves today, so we headed out on a picnic.
We tried a new spot:  Pixley Falls State Park
 After having a flat tire after church, we were very happy to reach our destination.
 Because of the flat tire it was well past lunch time.
 Everyone was hungry and happy to eat before heading out on a hike.

 Since it was a pretty steep hike everyone had a partner.

 Mark and Grace
 and Mom and Dad.

Way up a little waterfall 

 We did discover a new flower to us: agrimony
 Our first peak at the 50 foot Pixley Falls.
 White Admiral butterly
 We made it!!  For full disclosure...the walk to the bottom of the falls is very short.
 The best smile I can expect from this 8 year old.
 Pictures don't do it justice....there is A LOT of water going over this falls.
 All can all take off your shoes.
