Fall hike and reservior fun

We are having beautiful fall weather here. Last week we went on another hike around the nearby state park with some friends.

One friend spotted an old wasp nest and my friend Jessie was brave enough to take it down and dissect it so the girls could see how it was made. I actually learned a lot from this experience :)

The wasps take bits of wood from trees and make paper to build their nest out of.

I realized about half way through our hike that it was the first time I had taken all 3 girls on a hike without Andrew. I ended up carrying Naomi (and Baba) for a lot of it, but we made it!

At the end of the hike, the girls spotted a caterpillar with horns. I think it is a Leafy Spurge Hawk Moth caterpillar. 

After the hike, we went to the beach to play in the sand.

Naomi was so excited to see the water. She just walked right into that icy cold water in her clothes... and loved it. She went in several times to her waist and even fell over one time up to her shoulders.
