Nature Center

This morning was beautiful here in CT.  So we got out of the house and did some errands before heading up to the Nature Center in town (  They have a great farm, museum, gift shop, walking trails, playground, observatory, festivals, camps, etc.  It's a wonderful place to spend time.
Today we did the farm and the playground.  There were a lot of new animals since the last time we were there a few months ago.  The baby pigs and goats were our favorites.  Ben loved the big, old cow with the HUGE horns!
Aside from the geese who tried to eat our stroller and steal our snacks - we had a great time on the farm!

The playground was a huge hit as well.  It's built into a rocky ledge, but it's all safe.  Lots of ramps and small steps.  Tons of fun slides and lookouts.  There is also a HUGE sandbox and a very cool pirate ship that the boys both loved.

We finished our morning with a burger and hotdog lunch at the local hotdog/burger joint.  Very cool for the boys to sit up on the diner stools and watch the chefs cooking.  : )
