"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Family Nature Walk

We spent some good quality time outdoors Saturday evening! Matt and I love taking the boys on little adventures. With Matt as Carson and Tanner's Daddy, we are sure to have some fun adventures in the future. I say "we" because I plan on embarking on these fun outdoor adventures with my boys as much as possible. Matt will tell you this is a bit of a stretch for me, I have some fears I am definitely working on when it comes to the great outdoors, but it's so much fun to overcome your fears and let your guard down for a change! Our family adventure was at Lake Lotus Park. To get into Lake Lotus Park, you have to park offsite, and then take a tram into the park itself. Carson and Tanner loved the tram! First stop was the playground! The boys had a great time swinging, running across the swinging bridge, and sliding with Mommy!
Then it was off to the nature trail! We walked alongside a beautiful creek...
First piece of nature Carson found....a stick! The boys found more sticks and leaves. Carson was so sweet and gave some to his brother... While walking over the water, we spotted 3 turtles... A duck... And a GATOR! The highlight of our nature walk was spotting a baby alligator laying on a log just a few feet from our path... What a fun evening exploring the outdoors!
