A slice of nature

Today, we found a slice of nature within blocks of our house. Well, actually, Scott has been taking the boys there for some time and I had no clue. I always wondered why it took them 2 hours to go to the store :) There is a big park across from our neighborhood, and at the very back of it is a nice pond, with ducks and fish. There is even a small fishing pier. All you can get are these perch about 6 inches long, but kids don't know that. Scott promised the boys that for their birthday, he would take them fishing.

This morning, we got up and went out to lunch. Lunch was followed by a Wally-World run for fishing rods and bait. We took the kids over to the park and went out on the pier to teach them how to fish. Michael really liked fishing, but Matthew wasn't that into it. We caught about 4 perch, and released them right back. Then we let them run around and climb on the dirt hills. It's beautiful over there, and I think the kids had a great time.

I remember growing up, my friends and I used to spend a lot of time running around up on the mountain, and exploring the creed ('crick') that ran right behind my house. I'm so glad there is a place where I can take the kids for them to experience that.
