Jonah was home from school with me one warm sunny Friday when Micah was in school and we decided to head out on a little adventure. We headed to our local park which has a network of trails, streams, and protected wetlands. We enjoyed the sandbox and swings first, but the suns rays heated us up- so we moved to the stream area to check that out. I realized that he does not get to explore the "wild" nearly as much as I did when I was a kid so when he asked me if he could play in the stream I thought it would be a fun experience for him.
Very soon after we cooled our feet in the shallow, clear water we came upon a little frog. We were able to capture him in Jonah's tiny bucket to examine. VERY EXCITING for a curious and fearless little guy!!
Our little friend...Mr. Frog
He had soooo much fun exploring this little stream habitat.... the water bugs, crawfish, frogs, and tiny little freshwater clams and snails.
A cute and genuine expression... Love him!!
Exploring a stream with my four year old.... PRICELESS!!
