    Got my boys out for a hike, fun, and learnin'.

    Started off and came across this little guy. I picked him up and moved him off the road.

    Throwing rocks into a stream. They enjoyed learning about water flows, and how a creek can start off as a small spring, then get bigger and feed into a larger body of water.

    Intro to landnav, using the free park map.

    Oldest boy is learning about the pH scale in science. They all collected water samples and got to test the pH level.

    Thanks. I want to learn about mushroom identification.

    They grow too quickly. Not too long and I'll be taking the baby out more.

    LOL! I was wondering if anyone else had eaten escargot.
