Katya was on Thanksgiving break yesterday, I had no violin, and the day was warm. Obviously we should go to a park!
First we enjoyed the warm sunlight in the nature center.
A troop of turkeys came marching out of the woods–pity we couldn’t bag one for Thanksgiving.
Chad and Katya were very excited to watch the turkeys at the feeder.
We also checked out the specimens in the nature center.
I had no idea that river otters were so large!
The day was beautiful, and warm enough that Chad’s asthma didn’t bother him much, so we were able to walk down to the waterfowl preserve.
We looked through the spotting scopes at the duck pond, and saw a snapping turtle sunning itself on a rock.
My camera actually worked, for once, and I got a nice picture of Katya, which is difficult to do, because she is twitchy.
Then we visited a dam.
It was really windy!
Afterwards, we watched airplanes take off at the airport, ate frozen yogurt, and then went home, while I read “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” aloud in the car.
