Wednesday's Nature Hike

Yesterday the kids and I went for a very long walk around our neighborhood.
We usually take the same way, since the roads here are really meandering and I know how to get home!

But, yesterday, the wind blew us in a new direction.

We ended up finding a pretty neat nature trail which is super close to our house.

It even has a teeny tiny creek!

and Rowan found some teeny tiny nature ball seed thingies that fit perfect in her mouth

Breck actually did a really good job of staying with me during our walk.
Would you guess that there are houses just to the left, behind those trees?

and on the ride home, Rowan screamed and refused to sit down - nor did she want to walk with us, but rather run away from us, so I let her stand as I pushed the stroller. I know, I know. At this point, we'd been gone for about 1.5 hours and I was ready to be home.

I would like to note, however, that her screaming stopped abruptly when the high school track team ran by us.
And suddenly started again when they were out of sight.


  1. Walks that have gone long.. been there. Screaming kids... that too.

    LOL on how she stopped long enough to watch the track team. Kids are so funny!

    And how cool that a nature path is that close to your house!

  2. Hey...the way I look at're the mom! Do what you want to keep her quiet :)

    So cool about the nature trail nearby!


Thanks for taking time to leave a comment!
