Today we finally had some nice warm sunshine here in the Northwest, and the girls and I got out and enjoyed some time in the fresh air.
We've been trying to take a walk everyday this week after lunch, but we've just been walking a block or two by our house. Since it was so beautiful outside today we decided to take our cameras and bird book and go walk around the trails by the library.
There are quite a few ponds out there and lots of little trails weaving around among them. A great place to get a glimpse of some ducks and geese as they are usually all over out there. And this time of year there are babies! We were lucky enough today to see both ducklings and goslings. The girls were so excited!
We also saw a few red-winged black birds and got to hear some of the different calls they make. Hannah was fascinated that the same bird could make such different sounds.
We also saw some pretty flowers blooming around the ponds and many little, tiny flowers among the grass.
After walking around for a bit, we took a break and found a nice bench in the shade and read a chapter from our Little House book. We try to read a chapter everyday before nap time and we are now in the 5th book.
It was a great day to be out and I am so blessed that I got to spend that time enjoying nature with my girls. God is good!
And it was great too because the girls have been learning about creation at Sunday school so we were able to talk about all of the wonderful things that God made.
