Communing with Nature

19 Nov

We all needed some fresh air this weekend — even though the temperatures were rather unforgiving.

We decided to take the boys on their first nature hike.  Stopping first at a bird blind to watch them fly, eat and splash in a little pond.  Lucas really liked watching them and learning their names according to the directory on the wall.  Ben, on the other hand, really liked trying to crawl through the viewing area directly into the birds’ home.

We marched over bridges and past benches, around ponds and down paths.  The boys sported rosy cheeks and cold hands, while we ooohed and aaaahed at the nature around us.
