Owl Hill Nature Sanctuary

Kids are on the last day of Fall Break and after several days of fevers along with tons of rain. It was time to get out of the house! Owl Hill offered a Fall Break day and we took advantage of it. It was a hit with Henry several weeks ago so I knew Evie would enjoy it too. 

My kids need more more exposure to nature and music - two components that are harder to add to their life in an organized way. I loved that the nature guide was available today to teach everyone about tadpoles, feeding goats and pointing the way towards scenic hiking paths.

We had a ball! It was several hours of fun without any crying or whining which if you are a Mama you know that is hard to come by sometimes. 

Evie and Henry were in their element exploring the Fairy Gardens, Beetle Dung and the makeshift pumpkin patch. They may have even been enchanted by the port a potty! It really is the little things in life that get our children excited.

We had a nice picnic and enjoyed the day together. Ladybugs even made an appearance at our picnic. There were just a few other families visiting which was a nice reprieve from the crowded spots all over town. 

I'd say their favorite parts were feeding the goats for Evie and "fishing" for rocks for Henry. Evie loved the goats and Henry loves anything to do with a shovel. 

Dirty, happy kids are the best! Look forward to going back in a few weeks for the next program day at Owl's Creek.
