We probably won't be doing many nature walks like this anymore as the snow came yesterday! (pictures to come).
These photos are from a couple of weeks ago when we went for our nature walk with Meg and her boys D and M. I think I told you Sam said "I see water!" when she saw this:
The kids threw rocks and sticks and made some nice little splashes. Then we kept on walking and climbed over trees and picked up more sticks.
We walked over bridges and threw things into the water...that's fun too.
The funniest things about this walk were a few scary incidents...the boys are currently afraid that dogs will lick them and get scared when dogs appear. We ran into a few dogs and the kids got a little scared (but Meg and I were stifling laughter because really, it was a little funny). Also when we were on our last bridge, this little golf cart like truck comes zooming around the corner and all 4 kids freaked out a bit. Again, kind of funny. I think maybe you really had to be there to appreciate it. Ah, the memories!
We found a little park when we left the ravine and had a little swing to calm down.
So, yes, we have snow! Nothing to shovel yet...Katie is so disappointed...I may have help shoveling this year. And they wanted to make snowmen...so we did. Cute pictures. I have. Will share. Maybe tomorrow? Ah, but there's still photo backlog...soon then.
Today was Orange day at preschool but Katie insisted on wearing all pink anyway. Sam and I ran a few tiny errands and then browsed around an antique store near the school. Equal parts "Awesome" and "Don't Touch That!". We may or may not attempt that again. =)
Enjoy the rest of your day!
