McKinney Falls

Last Monday we headed to McKinney Falls State Park with the Baldwins and the Sandalls. It's only about 25 minutes away, so it's a great place to go for a little adventure! We knew going out that the water was probably dirty due to all the rain we have had recently, so we didn't go prepped to swim. We had a picnic, then walked to the upper falls where people were swimming in this rank water that, to me, looked similar what one would find at a waste treatment plant. Well, maybe not that bad, but I wouldn't want my dog to swim there. We walked around for a bit and then headed to the lower falls, which were much better. We let the kids walk around in the flowing water above the waterfall, where we knew the water would be cleaner. Before long they were totally soaked, using the rocks as water slides, and having the best time ever. Luckily none of them got sick, despite catching Simon drinking water from a rock. I think we all regretted not wearing our swimsuits...

Notice how the Sandall's picture came out perfect with both kids looking at the camera. Lucky ducks.
