another leafy walk a few weeks ago. christian came too, and the boys had lots of fun trying to catch leaves that the wind blew down. it's hard!
isla collected many, many leaves and sticks. and then had a hard time walking with her voluminous loot. but she refused to leave any behind. finally she realized she could pack some items into her backpack, which she did. she even broke some of her sticks in half so they would fit! funny girl. i think these mementos are in her little backpack still...
ezzie did some bird-watching. "caw-caw!!!" he would yell, and point!
carrie had told us about a hidden letterbox with block-print stamps that was supposedly hidden somewhere near the tower at the top of the arboretum. we searched and searched but to no avail. so sad! luckily isla and i had brought a few of our own stamps and ink just in case, and we did a little stamping along the trail anyway.
carrie says there are more letterbox sites around town. we need to get out and try to find another one! i think this is such a fun idea.
