Nature Center

Last week I took the kids to a local nature center and we had a really nice time, just the 3 of us! We saw, turtles, snakes, frogs, deer and many other critters. The kids also got to touch lots of different things like a turtle shell, a giant coconut, bones, tree trunks and many other cool nature things. The nature center isn't very big, but there was enough to keep us occupied for about 1 1/2 hours, which was plenty. After checking things out inside the center, we went for a walk through the woods. Brady is very into to collecting things on walks so he really enjoyed this!

Looks like a great time! Emily looks happy in her stroller too! That's so nice that she's content to stay in there! (My girls always want OUT!)

What in fun! I love Brady's cute head tile when he is posing with his lil' sis:)

Brady looks like a nature lover just like Eiley! She adores picking weeds and flowers and making discoveries in the wilderness :-) That picture of Emily with the coconut just cracks me up! It's almost the size of her whole body!
