We headed out to Carpenter Nature Center this morning to a)run around and get some wild and crazies out and b)check out their apple shack to see if the Chestnut Crabs are ready yet. We succeeded in the first endeavor!
Today, instead of taking our usual hike to the river overlook, we decided to explore a "ravine overlook" that we've always...well...overlooked. It was a HUGE hit!
I loved it because even though we would wander pretty far apart, I knew that there was no where for the kids to get lost-- two steep ravine sides kept them in the bottom, there was no running water anywhere, and they were in bright colors so we could spot them from a distance.
