Spring Mill State Park on our Anniversary...

We took our first outing as a family of four to a State Park on our sixth wedding anniversary. (Sunday, 4th March.) We went to beautiful Spring Mill State Park where we visited the Nature Centre (always a favourite for Riaan), walked around the Pioneer Village and saw the massive water mill. We also went to the impressive Spring Mill Inn nearby. It was a great afternoon exploring nature and history as a family! :)
