Acorn and Leaf Gathering

With another full day stretched out ahead of us, Alexandra and I headed to a *new* nature center- Tamarack Nature Center in White Bear Lake. While I think we'll remain loyal to Carpenter NC (it's closer and has an apple orchard!), we enjoyed the change of scenery and had a beautiful walk (despite the 50 degree drizzle). We were on a mission to gather acorns (there are no oak trees in our neighborhood!) and beautiful leaves. We also found two feathers and some beautiful wildflowers (Sky Blue Aster??)which all made their way onto our new Nature StringBoard that Gramps made us for a 'combined' birthday present.
Acorn project to follow soon! :-)
