We had ambitious plans this summer of planning a camping trip for one weekend each month with a group of our friends. The May trip was cancelled due to scheduling, but we made the best of it by going for a hike at Busey Woods.
The obligatory picture with mom.
Checking out the carpenter bees!
Fun with friend F.
climbing trees (fallen tree trunks, that is)
Even though we could not go camping, we pitched the tent on the porch and filled it with sleeping bags and stuffed animal puppets (thanks to the Anita Purves Nature Center Animal Puppets Loan Box!). The kids played in it for hours!
