We go to parks we’ve never been to before, and bring a picnic.
After we eat, we walk around and admire flowers. There are lots of these blue ones.
We hang over bridge-railings, and discuss creek patterns and skunk-cabbages.
Later, on a different bridge, we admire a pair of mallards.
Katya says (well, whispers) “Pac, pac.”
Chad and Kristina –and later, Katya– climb up into a tree house, set on a real tree. Katya is decidedly not impressed. Apparently she has a fear of heights? Anyways, she roars and cries the whole time she is up there, and whimpers and shriekes the whole time comming down–even with Daddy’s assistance. Chad and Kristina like it, though.
Katya likes the hidey-hole in the base of the tree, though.
There’s a smile!
And to finish, we take pictures by a tree.
