A Little Bit of Nature

K spent much of her childhood in the great outdoors.  I, on the other hand, equate camping with eating dinner on the screened-in porch.  So, in an effort to get the kids a little more outdoor time, we spent Saturday with K’s dad at a local wetlands preserve (the same place K spent a lot of time with her dad growing up).

BTW, when did they stop being called “swamps?”  But I digress.

That describes me to a T.  It’s because I care.

So what was the carrot with which K enticed me to go on this little excursion?

And I may have just found my Halloween costume.

    Ranger Rick Wetlands Tip: Squatting six inches from the mushroom before training the high powered binoculars on it enhances the viewing experience.

    I concur, Dr. Carpoolqueen.

    I would’ve needed to make a sacrifice at the kk throne pre and post trip…
