The Surrey Without the Fringe on Top

On Sunday we decided to skip the gym and head outside for some exercise. It was a perfectly gorgeous day--not too hot, not too cold. We headed down to Minnehaha Falls Park, enjoyed the beauty of the falls,

and rented a surrey suitable for a family of four (the only one without the fringe on top, I must add!)The girls loved the hour-long ride we took around the park and along the Mississippi River.

Mike and I worked up a good sweat going uphill, then enjoyed the breeze going downhill, inhaling the sweet smell of the lilacs blooming all along the trail. Afterwards, we headed to the ice cream stand
and made a final stop at the playground before heading home. It was a great afternoon....about as good as they get, I think.
