Picnic and Hiking with Grandma Fry (June 13)

This is a park about 15 minutes from our house. It is owned by the youth of our county, or something like that. It is maintained by this wonderful old gentleman who let us into the nature center and showed us all kinds of great nature stuff.

After a delicious picnic, and a very cool discovery of and animal carcas in the edge of the woods, we set out for some easy hiking. There's just something about getting out there...the trees, the air, the birds. It puts things into perspective.

Thank you, Grandma, for a fun time!

It's late, and I can't even remember the name of the park at the moment. It'll come to me after some sleep. We hope to return for a little risk-free camping soon.This park also hosts an incredible camping/stargazing event in July. They have some powerful stargazing equipment on site.

Looks like fun. I thought it kind of funny that I've lived in Frankfort for 28yrs and didn't know the story behind Camp Collum!
Cute pictures of kids and I'm enjoying the blog updates!

I remember a while back when you mentioned on my blog how fun it would be to get Mollie and Kayla together - that picture of Kayla with the walking stick and her bag of "treasures" looks exactly like something Mollie would do! Just last week at camp, I found a bunch of acorns in her backpack. I was given specific instructions not to get rid of them! She loves to find rocks and pick flowers. I'm sure our girls would have a great time together!
