Yesterday afternoon, in the hours between toddler nap and dinner prep, we made a trip out to Drumlin Farm. A combination of working farm, animal rehabilitation center, and nature sanctuary, Drumlin Farm is just the kind of mixed bag of an outing that my people tend to enjoy. We picked carrots and flowers, ogled a very attractive fox, and Z. yelled joyfully at the resident bunny for about fifteen minutes without taking a break. There were sheep and pumpkins and weird bugs and the gift shop has a good price on my favorite series of field guides. An all around good time was had.
In other news, we are organizing a super fun family nature box exchange over at Mud Puddles to Meteors. If you would like to swap some of your local nature finds with another family, hop on over and check it out.
