We stopped the Greenbelt in IF the other evening and spent about an hour wandering around and letting the kids explore.  I kept stopping to take pictures because the lighting was so pretty, and at one point I was so caught up in what I was doing that I missed the last step…landing awkwardly on my ankle and doing the “Oh, I’m cool…don’t worry about me!” step-and-jump in front of 10 strangers.
