The Forest in February

Yesterday's high topped out in the 50's! There is usually one day of the month that is a little nicer than the others so we can keep up with our monthly visits to the forest. Yesterday Asher actually asked me if we could go to the forest.

So, we invited his friend Cameron along to run off some of that extra little boy energy (and they had a lot of it!). We arrived shortly after noon to a quiet forest, at least it was quiet until we arrived. The boys and I walked (well, they ran, but I walked) the 1 mile boardwalk. They collected sticks to throw, watched for trains on the train tracks below, looked for wild animals and birds, and got some much needed fresh air. The forest is so peaceful.

The boys played a bit in the acorn acres area before going inside to play with the blocks. Asher loves playing with the blocks. He could play there for hours.

After all the fun of the forest, we visited a park briefly before going home to wait for the girls.

It was a beautiful, fun afternoon. Both of the boys said they had fun. Forest trip: Success. Now, I just need to go back with just Asher so I can hear some of that silence. :)
