Nature Center


We met friends Mia and Andi at the nature center one morning this past week, and like all other times we've visited -- the girls had a great time. It's always fun becoming one with nature . . .


It's also always fun checking out the salamander . . .

. . . and the frog . . .

. . . and trying to see the frog's tongue as it quickly snatched up the little white grub that was his snack.

I'm not a big frog holder myself, but I'm glad Zoe . . .

. . . and Ella are!!

I'm also glad they seem to enjoy riding the giant acorn . . .

. . . and posing while on the giant acorn.

Our nature walk to the pond, and walking on the pond itself (which is completely frozen over) was great fun too. We had so much fun none of the little girls wanted to leave : )


While walking around the pond we saw another mom with her toddler-aged son and a small baby tucked in the front of her winter jacket, with only his little round face sticking out. It was really cute and Ella and Zoe thought it was the best way
for a mommy to carry around her baby.

I didn't realize what an impact that mom and baby had on Ella and Zoe until later that night when the girls
came out of their bedroom looking like this:
I thought that was pretty sweet : )
