Hike

May 10, 2012

One of the things we like to do when we want to get outside, but don’t have the time or energy for a full camping trip, is go to Lory State Park and have a campfire dinner. This last time we went we also went on a little hike on one of the trails near the fire spot. We didn’t go too far, but Garrett ran pretty much the whole way.

Critters

Kalyn continues to love all things that creep and crawl. In this video you can see a garter snake that Kalyn caught herself, then stuck in a bucket until Daddy came home. This is not in the video, but a few days earlier Kalyn caught 2 garter snakes at once – one in each hand. Unfortunately, we did not get any pictures of that event. You can also see the gigantic worm that Kalyn found while we were working in the garden. As far as Kalyn is concerned, finding worms is the best part of having a garden.
