Today was supposed to be my laundry catch up day, but I woke up with a sore throat and wasn't really feeling like doing anything. Mr. G was feeling left out because his older brothers were hanging around the computer playing Tobuscus videos and didn't really want him around. He came to me with tears and grumps, very near a meltdown. I had him bring me the list off the fridge and I made a few suggestions. Nature Center caught his eye. Honestly I was really hoping for Kids Plan Supper. The older two boys said they didn't want to come (having a highschool aged kid has it's perks) so Mr G and I headed off to the local Wildlife Refuge.

|Little Blue Heron - a first for us!|
|The Observation Building Pond|
|This hawk/eagle/osprey gave us quite a show!|
|He was circling and diving into the pond after something.|
|This grasshopper chirruped on the mic and gave us the giggles.|
|Practicing for his "Big Year"?|
|We THINK this was a Great Blue Heron|
|Wood Duck and ducklings|
After spending over an hour watching all the excitement of summer at the refuge, we headed back to town for an extra treat.
