So we finally did our Green Hour Challenge, assignment 1. Yes, I know everyone else is on Green Hour 27, but we’re doing it now. I hate to conform. So we went outside, we looked, we splashed, we threw rocks.
There is a very nice nature preserve about 10 minutes from us. We headed off for a very quick, short, half hour tops visit. Okay, so it was more like an hour and a half. But we had to go down by the creek. And then we had to take off our shoes and wriggle them in the water. And we had to throw about a million rocks into the creek. Gigglemeister especially liked throwing rocks and would have headed downstream if I hadn’t had a firm grip on his overalls. I love overalls for toddlers: the best handle ever.
Yes, the Sprite wore a dress to go on our nature walk. She’d wear a dress 24/7 if she could. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have the knack of wearing a dress modestly, especially not while climbing trees and hanging upside down.
We spent a good half hour just watching the creek and listening to her babble. Of course, with my noisy boys, we scared most animals away, but we did hear a few birds. There was a very pretty blooming tree that the girl’s want to investigate further. I had the Sprite take a picture to help us identify it when we got home, since I was busy saving the Gigglemeister from taking a dunk.
What do you think?
It’s a small tree or maybe a bush with purplish petals in small clusters. Yeah, I got nothing. This cGMP enzyme allows men to achieve an cheap viagra erection when aroused. Tadaga Strong is good to take in case you have to drive at home or sildenafil canada pharmacy carry out any such essential tasks. Tinnitus in this case is not a disease but a group of conditions, which are characterized by bloating feelings, and some patients are check out description cialis levitra viagra suffering from testicular discomfort or pain. Such type of cialis canadian generic pharmacies are to be avoided on this diet. If it’s still blooming when we go back next week, I’ll try again. Meantime, the girl’s tell me if we just google “purple flowers,” we’ll find it. Ah, the optimism of youth!
Then we decided to go off the paved path on a new explore. Well, new for us. Gigglemeister decide to stop and throw every rock he found exactly one foot. But finally we found a nice little pond where a nice mallard and his mrs. were taking a paddle ’round the pond. We also saw about a dozen turtles sunning themselves on a couple of logs. We tried to make our way to get a closer shot, but thorns thwarted us. That, and our melodious meanderings weren’t appealing to turtles, and they bailed on their sunbathing. I wonder if these turtles are related to the rescued beastie from down the road? These turtle are our second investigation, and we’ll be heading to the library soon for a turtle book. If we can find one in the wild (not a nature preserve, but somewhere in our neighborhood, and not this big), we may host him for a few days and observe.
It was nice to be out in the beautiful spring weather. A bit windy, but otherwise pleasant. There aren’t many flowers blooming yet. I can’t wait to see what it looks like in a few weeks. If I’m not too busy chasing these stinkers to look around.
