{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} October 24

round button chicken







{Pretty}



The weather has been gorgeous and we took advantage of the pleasant temps to go on a field trip to our local nature center.  Don't you just love the visitor's center? What a view!





We saw deer on several occasions and were surprised at how close they actually let us get to them.



{Happy}


The kids loved running about and exploring.  They climbed into two tree houses, 



and in and out of a bear's den, 






and a mouse's hole.




They enjoyed shuffling through fallen leaves, 



and blowing billows of weedy fluff.

I tried to get a group photo of my four, but Lil' Lamb would take off before the shot was taken calling out, "Let me see!"


Not {Real}


We were convinced this was a real heron.  So convinced the kids even saw it blink it's eyes and turn it's head.  When we returned to this spot 2 hours later, the bird was still standing in the exact same spot.  It was then that we all realized it was just a very real looking metal sculpture.  Ornithologists, we are not!
