Sunday Morning Hikes

Hello Joyflakes!

Last weekend was Memorial Day weekend and with an extra day off, we decided to make the most of it. My step-brother's girlfriend was visiting and our former roommate Brian was in town so we hosted a large BBQ at our house on Sunday and enjoyed having everyone together.

We didn't make any plans for our day off but Monday morning we woke up early and made plans to go hiking at Lake Macbride State Park with our roommates family.

It was a perfect day for hiking. Not too warm or humid, but beautifully sunny. We headed to one of my favorite places, the spill way.

Of course, Izzy got to come along with us. She loves hiking!

Iowa isn't the adventure destination that comes to mind for most people when they think of hiking over a long weekend, but I feel pretty darn lucky to live so close to such beautiful sights.

What did you do over Memorial Day?
