Nature Walk

On Thursday we actually had a few hours with no rain {insert a hallelujah}, so we headed outside. Some of us with cameras ;) The girls love going on "nature walks". The goal was to find a butterfly, a ladybug, and a caterpillar on our walk. Funny enough, I don't think we came across any of them. That's a first!

But we did find Mr. Bug.


And some daisies. Sierra loves daisies.


And these dainty little buttercups

Gramps came along.

Kam learned the proper way to throw rocks in the creek.

Thank you, Grampa.

She found that the bigger they are, the bigger they splash!

It's been another quiet day inside due to a very sleepy, very feverish little sugarplum. Oh how I hate it when the kiddos are sick.

What a sweet time! Yes, praise God for no rain for a bit...makes for fun days. I love daisies too. They are right up there with sunflowers for me.

You got some very pretty pictures on your walk Liz. That is strange that you did not see any of the creatures you were looking for. Love the splash picture. Hope everyone feels better soon.

What fabulous photos. I love the photo of the girls and grandpa in the back ground. I think it is so great to take kiddos on nature walks. It teaches them to stop and enjoy the beauty around us.
I hope you all get to feeling better soon!

Poor little girl, at least it's mostly rainy out if you have to saty inside sick :)

Jen said...

Liz - oh my word - your pictures are just amazing. (What lens are you using? Or is it all just God-given talent??) You have quite an eye. I hope your little sugarplum is feeling better by now :)
