Outdoor Adventures with Grammy

The single best thing about my parent's house is that it borders an Audubon. Grammy has taken the girls on countless walks through the forested paths to visit frog pond and the wooden foot bridge. A few months ago, Grammy even bought them backpacks and water bottles to go along with their walking sticks, in order to "authenticate" the hikes!

Now that the girls are old enough, Grammy enrolled them in some weekend activities the Audubon was hosting. The most recent was this canoe trip. It was a bit lengthy for the girls (2+ hours of sitting still!) but they really enjoyed it!

The funny thing is when I've asked them what they remember most about the day, they mostly tell about the group in the canoe that tipped over, but sometimes it's all about the ice cream that followed!!!
