I was worried I would miss this week's challenge.
You see, I've not been outside much. I've walked around our neighborhood a few times, but I wouldn't exactly call that nature.
So, today, determined to participate, I packed up the double stroller with a Bjorn, lots of diapers, a bottle, sippy, crackers, Sophie the giraffe, several pacifiers, sun hats, a valium for me (ho ho ho, just kidding, but I kind of wish I did have one) and my camera and went to the park. The closest to nature I'm getting this week.
On our little nature walk, which only lasted about thirty minutes, we saw:
Lots of pretty flowers (okay, weeds really) ...
One of the many reasons I want to itch my eyes out of my face (grass allergies, boooo!):
Lots and lots of green - we do live in the Pacific Northwest, you know...
And some very tall trees with the lovely sun peeking through their branches.
I would love to say our nature walk was relaxing, but alas, it was the opposite. But we did get some fresh air, and I think I managed to convince the people we passed on the trail that the baby was, in fact, gassy and I wasn't poking him with pins.
To be one with nature, trek on over and visit Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry.
