A Nature Walk In The Snow

The snow has finally melted here in Kansas, but for weeks, it was everywhere. A beautiful blanket of white......I always think it's so pretty.

I took the little ones out to the Ernie Miller Nature Center.

Only part of the trails were plowed, so we walked where we could.

Went inside to see the animals and talk to the park rangers.

They love these little exhibits......with the magnifying glasses to get a closer look at the critters.



Bird watching.

Boot watching.



No worries with the lack of trails plowed. The kiddos preferred to drudge through the snow, anyway.

They ate plenty of it, too!



Time to go home.....punkin Laine wants to stay. And, eat more snow.


We have a couple of little spurts of snow expected in the next couple of weeks. Hoping we get a good amount so we can hit the slopes again! I'm anxious to hear giggly Laine......she's so silly on skis. Loving the Kansas winter. Hope you're enjoying yours!

I am so incredibly impressed that you took the kids out in the snow. We have been holed up in our house dreaming of summer. Good job, Mom.

Isn't it great to see the world though little eyes? I love it. Last year Mike and I took Rachel and Abby to the Duluth aquarium and to see the girls look, watch and see everything was so much fun. To watch Mike watch the girls was almost even better. Kids, such great creatures.
Have a great weekend. Take care and God Bless!!!

Great pictures! The magnifying glass and the boot watching. Snow pics are great too! Go skiing again so I can be jealous that my family and I aren't going.
