Our friends tipped us off to this fun little event at the nature center, and since we'd never been to the nature center and enjoy hanging with our pals, we happily signed up! What we didn't realize is we would be the only two families participating! We first started out inside the nature center to read a story about listening for things and then we went on a nature walk through the woods and listened for noises in nature. That is, once we got past the noises of pool construction and trucks on the nearby road :)
Here they are, looking out off the bridge.
At one point we came to a fork in the road and the boys were ready to veer off on their own leaving the rest of us behind.
Getting an up close look at some plants and muddy water.
After the nature walk we went inside to check out the turtles, owls and snakes.
There were pretty excited to see one of the snakes out of his cage and being held by someone. Troy liked getting to touch it a few times. I'm sure he was friendly, but he was a definitely a big long guy!
