A trail through my favorite wooded area brought us to a creek that none of the kids could resist. All shoes off and all toes wet! This was Cullen's first creek-walk; Kathryn's, too, I think.
Everyone explored; only two out of seven managed to get their clothes wet. :o)

We had lunch together in a big open meadow, then the kids romped around, hid in the tall grass, sketched a little with colored pencils and paper, and/or searched out bugs and caterpillars. I was too engrossed in relaxing on a blanket in the shade to think of picking up my camera at this point. If there had only been a restroom nearby, I think I could have been perfectly happy there all day long!
Cullen added a page about his creek experience to his nature notebook when we got home, then wanted to go again after dinner!
