At our old house there was seriously a lack of nature. It was only a few miles away, but it took forever in traffic to drive to some of the places where we could find trees and water. Now we are a little closer - we live about 2 miles from the beach, 3 miles or so away from a "Wilderness Park", 2 miles away from a nature preserve, and there are a lot of parks in our area.
They are both at a really fun age, so I think I'm going to start using every Tuesday as our Adventure Day. I am realizing that I don't have much time left with both boys during the day, since Micah will start school in the September 5 days a week, so I want to make these days memorable.
Here are a few pictures from our recent Adventure Days:
At the Nature Preserve with their Dollar-Tree "Bug Keepers":
(All we found were ladybugs but they loved it anyway)
This isn't the best picture, but here the boys are exploring in the rocks at the Long Beach harbor:
We went here yesterday and the boys collected rocks. I sat on the sand and looked
for dolphins, but didn't see any :(
Isn't this amazing?! It is a staircase leading up from the beach to someone's house
(it is hard to fully see the distance up in this picture):
At the beach again; Micah was SO happy:
The boys playing in the boats (that Agent was very smart!!):
The beautiful sunset:
I don't consider myself much of a beach person, but I'm so glad it makes the boys happy, and it is breathtaking. Hoping for more fun adventures soon!!
