{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} October 24

round button chicken


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.


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!
