talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Wetlands walk

We went on a really cool nature walk today. It was actually geared more for adults, but all the ramblers, as they're called, were more than happy to accept our group into the fold and teach us anything they knew about our local flora and fauna. And these people know a lot! We talked about deer tracks, canary reed grass, mama ducks, crawdad castles (photos above), jack-in-the pulpits, salamander counts, skunk cabbage, and much, much more. We even saw an old coot. No kidding!

We decided to walk through the woods before the mosquitoes become pesky this season, which turned out to be a great idea. Not surprisingly, we ran into some really mucky areas along the way, and it was really a lot of fun. I think those spots were called "boot grabbers" or something like it.

Kathleen, Fiona and Dever and I had a great time soaking up all the nature and information that surrounded us. Nora did too, but she had an additional treat-- she made a special friend named Dick who carried her on his shoulders and offered her a finger to hold as they walked together. Dick and everyone there hopes we'll ramble again soon. So do we!
