Weekends are for unwinding and spending time with my son.

The highlight of our Saturday was a trip to Second Home Nature Center. I used my reliable method of putting him in the stroller to get him away from the car and on to the boardwalk. Once there, it's smooth sailing for hiking and exploring. It's totally worth pushing the empty stroller the rest of the time. Plus, it makes it easier for diaper changing supplies, which were needed on this trip. At some point I'll have to develop a new system that doesn't rely on the stroller, but for now it makes my life easier.

He just loves the bog trail (as do I). This time around he discovered the joy of throwing leaves and pine needles into the water. He sure is a fun little guy.

The highlight of our Sunday was dinner at my sister's house. My nephew is celebrating his 6th birthday today, but because of our hectic schedule we won't be able to join the festivities. So we went over last night to see him and enjoyed a super yummy meal. Six years old! Good grief! So big!

How was your weekend?

Pretty and fun pix! :D

My weekend was pretty good.

Today, after my endocrinologist appointment, I had a strange walk, walking along the Clinton River from a new spot that followed a tiny narrow pathway along a very long tall wall with tree and rocks, difficult navigating it. I should have stopped to take some pix. It was a bit of an adventure. Pretty colors, though--mostly gold and yellow, but pretty, reflected in the river.

Not sure that I made it clear that on one side was the wall, on the other side, the river, with a drop off of about 10 feet, and rocks, and deep water, so falling from the tiny precarious trail would not have been wise.

Not a good spot for small children, to say the least. Or a kid in a stroller or even a backpack.

Sounds like quite an adventure! Sometimes it's nice to walk in new spots.

looks like such a serene place to be :) I love when I can get out into nature. I love to eat at my sister's house because she is a fab cook and then I don't have to cook :)
