A Broken Record..Another Great Place to Visit Here
I feel I constantly go on about the incredible things to do here where we live, but we discovered another amazing, free place to visit today. It was a beautiful day so we decided to check out our local nature center. I read about their natural sensory based play trail online, and it sounded right up our alley. It was amazing. I can't wait to take Jillian here. It has all the makings of a wonderful day for her without a doubt. We also had a special guest go with us. Our friend back home sent us her Flat Stanley to visit for a few days. We took him with us on our adventure and will chronicle it for her class to read after we mail him back.
Digging through sand searching for fossils was one of our first stops.
I can't believe how well this little lady does with all fine motor and gross motor tasks. She is incredible.
There was a pit to assemble bones. There were baskets and baskets of all sorts of bones. Anna Mei began to sort them by type touching them ever so delicately.
It was a picture perfect day! It has always been a dream of mine to be a stay at home mom playing with my littles. At nearly 40, God has certainly granted me the deepest desires of my heart!
There were giant rocks to climb on!
At every turn, there were logs, stumps, and other wood things to explore. I love the natural blocks and table to build with them on. I really want to build one in our backyard now.
After we were done playing on the sensory trail, we had a picnic, and then headed to the hiking trails. We climbed down the embankment and explored the creek from a dry sandbar. I really can't wait to have Jillian here! It will be a dream come true!
Flat Stanley lost an arm along the way, but, no worries, we repaired him in our kitchen hospital when we returned home. These two both took stellar naps this afternoon, and I am so grateful for the time with these babies! Good, so very good!
