Visiting a new Nature Park

Yep, we found a new park to walk and hang out and enjoy nature!  Another of my pals had told me about it and I am glad we decided to try it out.

It had acres and acres of natural trails to hike or bike as well as a very long greenway perfect for a casual stroll.  We walked and explored for hours, enjoying the beautiful fall TN day!
 Naturally we stopped for a picnic lunch!
 Then back to our nature walk....

 Sammy got the easiest walk, while my legs were a bit sore after the day! 
 BFF's....They are getting so mature and hardly looked back to see where we were, just kept up their non-stop chatter!
 After a few hours of walking & hiking we stopped at a local playground to get out any of the remaining energy they could possibly have.  Let's say we all slept well that night!

So if you are in East Tennessee and are looking for a great park to hike, walk or bike I strongly suggest Haw Ridge Park in Oak Ridge.  I'm so glad we checked it out!

Love it! Good times in the sunshine! Will have to put that park on the agenda. Loving this weather. We should play soon --
PS - Love Sammy's haircut. I...there just aren't words.

I love all of the beautiful fall colors! The scenery is gorgeous along with those sweet children of yours. I love how it's so sunny, yet you're all in warm clothing. I wish it was like that here! We are in the middle of some hot, humid weather!
