We went to the Park today!! It was 70 degree's out, so we decided it was the day to go to the park for our first picnic of the season!!! What a wonderful time!! We met new friends, played with friends we know, and had fun with each other. We took a nature walk around the park and heard an Owl!! What fun... we could also hear different kinds of birds. We saw a squirrel and chipmunk... and there was an itty bitty cricket making it's way across the sidewalk.
So we got to use all our senses today at the park... we used our sense of sight to see the animals and our friends, our sense of hearing while we listened to the birds and Owl... we also heard the brook before we got to it. There is a great bridge that is over a babbling brook, now that was fun. Next time we will try to get closer to it and really start to explore. I can just picture the kids with their bug houses, little nets, and mud boots looking for just about anything... that will be soon :)
We ended our trip to the Park with a trip to the Deluxe Ice Cream Parlor!! We are lucky enough to have an Ice Cream Parlor that makes their own homemade ice cream, it is always a treat to visit and support a local business, especially one that taste so good!!!
What a Great End to a Great Week!!!
