There is captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and The Invisible Lady. Hmm, should I tell Bug she isn't actually invisible when she takes her clothes off.
There was rock hounding, mud throwing, rock chucking, pretending. Fun.
I found an agate while sitting next to this beauty.
He was experimenting with force and circumference of mud splats.
They were all hunting for the perfect rock specimen. The hard pack was the place to look today.
Checking out the breaking point of dried mud.
Taking in the beauty of it all.
This is where we spent 2 hours of our morning.
Even bug ran- with a little help from Dad.
We eventually caught up to LBB. He was having some trouble on the slippery trail. A volunteer helped him out until we caught up. He was a trooper. He was also first in line to get his ribbon.
At the finish line. Beefcake wished he hadn't wore that sweater.
All with ribbons and prizes. Builder ran the 1.3km trail in 9:40. Animal ran it in 9:10. LBB took 13:10. And bug was carried around at13:40. They all had a blast and asked to do it again.
We have been doing some coloring.
Found a new place to explore just 5 min from our house.
Just me and the twins. It was weird spending time sitting and really watching the shows. The attention span of 7 year olds is very different than a 2 year old. We had a nice relaxing day.
This is my amended view from the kitchen window. We found a bunch of treated beams on our property. One even had some swing hooks attached. So we set it up. We even have neighbors with kids the same age as the younger 2.
There is a wonderful gallery here with some kids programming. The kids love it.
And there is even a play room for kids to go when they are done, but others are not quite finished their masterpiece. The bonus is I found out about this place and purchased a half price membership on their sale day before we moved. They even run home school days through the school year. And They have an open space where we can drop in and art whenever we want. All this for $35. Awesome.
We finally found a gorgeous rock hounding spot.
