Watch Out Nature, Here We Come!

Tired Mom and the Super Kids put on our walking hats, grabbed our Nature Walk Kit we ordered from the library, put on our walking back pack, and set out to the Watershed Nature Center to celebrate Veteran's Day.
Super Spy needed to be nursed before we left, so I took some pics of the kids hanging out in the car. Is this one of the cutest baby pics ever or what???
Tired Mom suited up with the baby sling, and off we went. (Danger Boy took this picture, can you believe it?)
Part of the nature walk kit included a big catcher, a pair of kid sized binoculaurs, magnifying glasses, and a ton of books. The books stayed in the car after Tired Mom had to go back to the parking lot TWICE for Kid Catastrophe to use the restroom. The idea of reading books about nature out in the woods sounded good, but fell to the inevitable cold hard truth that carrying a baby and a big plastic case with 13 books in it was going to be too tiring.
Every view on the nature trail looks just as cool as this. The whole place looks like something out of a travel brochure, and we enjoyed it immensely. The weather was perfect!
It was funny that the binoculars matched KC's hat. She looked like quiet the stylish little nature lover.
The kids found tons of things to climb on and play with on the many little side trails off the main path. Danger Boy thought this little creek was great fun. He "accidentally" got his feet wet a few times.
Super Spy was more interested in gnawing on Tired Mom's sunglasses than looking at nature, but she was good the whole 2 1/2 hours we were out, so no complaints here!

Yep, I made the boy take his turn with the Tinkerbell back pack!
Danger Boy found a giant leaf and wanted me to take a picture. He was pretty proud of it. This Tired Mom cannot think of a better way to spend a day off from school with her kids. Plus, we came home and read the books out of the kit. We snuck some learning in there too!
