We had big plans today to visit the science center with the cub scouts, but everybody canceled out at the last minute. Since we go there pretty regularly anyway, and today was gorgeous, we decided to do some exploring. Off to the lake!
I can't wait till the weather warms up enough to go camping. Just being out in the woods today was so refreshing for both of us. I believe Zach used his new favorite phrase fifteen times this afternoon, "Oh, yeah, baby!!" My only regret is that I haven't made Zach an explorer bag yet, because my pockets were stuffed with all kinds of treasures (and dirt) when we came home.
Check it out... we found a honey tree! And with my love of The House on Pooh Corner, and Zach's love of classic Berenstain Bears... we were embarrassingly excited to stumble on a honey tree in real life. There's very little in this world that's more awe-inspiring than the intricate pattern made by a simple honeybee.
And here's Zach's find of the day... a completely intact turtle shell. Remind me that I need to drop a big bottle of hand sanitizer into that explorer bag when I get it made.
All said and done, I finally put together our nature display, just using the items we brought home today. This was a good day.
Oh, yeah, baby.
