One of our summer projects this year is to walk all of the trails in our city. Because a creek system sprawls through it, there are a lot of trails. We drive to where we left off last time walk a mile of two and then walk back to pick it up at the end of where we walked previously. A lot of the trails run into parks and then we stop and play. We are trying to go really early in the morning, taking picnic breakfasts, so that if we spend three hours out we are still out before it gets too hot. The children have caught fish and taken them home to put in our kiddie pool to watch before releasing them again. They have also caught a snake, which took the place of the lizard we just let go. We also saw a beaver leave its den and return. Such fun rambling summer days.
