|Lauryn kept shouting excitedly, "We're in the woods!"|
|"Take a picture of me up here, Mommy!"|
|This Eastern Tent Caterpillar was inches from Lauryn's face before I got her to notice it.|
|They could have stood there throwing rocks in the creek for hours.|
|Joe's eagle eye spotted this Brown Watersnake sunning himself on a log in the middle of the creek.|
|Eastern Garter Snake - I nearly stepped on this fella while pointing out the trillium to the kids!|
|Joe set up a game of tic-tac-toe and we played several times.|
|Lauryn found a piece of log with a small protrusion and immediately pronounced it to be a hammer.|
"Here's a screwdriver for you, Lauryn!"
"Thanks, Joe!" She fiddled with it for a moment, then with an absolutely disdainful tone, nose wrinkled in disgust, she announced, "It's not a screwdriver, it's a STICK!"
We rounded out the day with ice dreams from Chick-Fil-A, and a frosted coffee for Mama!
