Photo(s) of the Day: Nature Sanctuary

One of the aspects I love about where I live is that despite the size (pop. ~30,000), and the location (the Midwest), there are still fun things to do. The Matha Lafite Thompson Nature Sanctuary is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon. We’ve taken a picnic and gone on a few hikes there twice now, but this was the first time with Baby K. Saturday felt like a nice day, until we started hiking in the sun. It was hot. We saw a lot of small wildlife though, and it was so nice to have a laid back Saturday afternoon – the first one in months! If only we had Labor Day once a week instead of once a year!

These flowers attracted a lot of bees. (What kind of flower is it?)

Along the Rush Creek trail. The water was too high to cross and continue the hike.

Can you spot the frog?

Photo of the Day: LOVE

Yesterday when I got home from work & the gym, my over-tired baby was grouchy. Within minutes she fell asleep in my arms. How could these arms possibly be more comfortable than her bed? I can’t imagine … but I so love it.

Photo of the Day: Too Petite

We tried Baby K in her door jumper last night since she’s starting to sit up and making lots of strong kicking motions. She’s still too short to jump – but as apprehensive as she looks in the photo, she loved just sitting and swinging in it!
