Pleasant Valley

Last Saturday after a hard week I wanted to take some time and have a special day with the kids. Earlier in the week I reserved a pass at our local library for the Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary. It took us a bit of time to get out the door but we finally made it! Yay! We went to pick up the pass at the library and then headed to Pleasant Valley.

A nice lady greeted us at the main building and showed us a trail that was perfect for our crew. The boys were eager to set out.

Our First View Of the Pond

Bugs Claimed This Rock =)

Look, Mommy! Look! Look!

Look Mommy, a tree!" Bugs yelled excitedly. He was super cute.

Following the Blazed Trail

We heard a bullfrog by the pond. He sounded just like a twanging rubber band.

Everybody Got to Observe
I was surprised & pleased that our little friend sat patiently and let us watch him for quite some time.

The way these trees grew it looked exactly like bars. Isn't that funny?

In Memory

We walked the trails for about 45 mintues. It was just enough and we were able to see lots of God's Creation. And we got bit by many mosquitos. Lol!
