We continued our park adventures by exploring the adjacent nature center and trails. The nature center could have easily provided free entertainment for an hour or more. Jack checked out the numerous reptiles and stuffed animals.
There was a baby-friendly area with building blocks, smooth wooden logs, puppets, and a large tent. James spent most of his time moving logs around while Maddie and Amelia enjoyed the plethora of hand puppets.
It was so nice to be able to walk around the trails together as a family. The early morning weather wasn't too hot or humid yet, which created an ideal environment. It's so important to me that Jesse and I are active with the kids and our children are able to enjoy playing outdoors.
No surprise, Jesse and I pulled into the garage with a van full of four sleeping children. Our first day of summer was a success!
