All Day with Dad!

What an outdoor day we had today! We woke up, went and had some breakfast at waffle house and started our day. First we stopped by one of my favorite leisurely hiking trails in the area. I love walking the trail because the trees are so thick and the green just seems greener there than everywhere else.

Of course she found another stick.

Exploring a magnolia leaf
We are the world! We are the children!
Such a good learner!
 Queen of the woods!
We found this beautiful little pine warbler. Yellow!

Then we went to Harris Lake and found this beautiful Eastern Bluebird - Blue!
(and to finish the primary color spectrum, we saw a cardinal and a red headed woodpecker, but we didn't get pictures of them.
Doin' the frog hop.
Finding shells.
Yes, another stick.

The moon's awake now! (That's how we acknowledge night time around here these days :)
After playing at Monkey Joe's Inflatables, we came home and explored the back yard again at sunset.
These are our tadpoles we keep checking on. We're waiting to see when they grow legs.
This is out by the little stream in our back yard. (where the tadpoles are)
Our own little Garden of Eden
Before going in she had to "Drive to Adventure". I still don't know where she picked up that line.
