For the Birds

On Friday, the kids and I decided to check out a local wildlife refuge with some new friends of ours. The refuge has a very interactive visitor's center with lots of kid-friendly activities: building blocks, animal skins and skeletons, crayons for nature rubbings, books, and Grace's favorite - toy birds that play authentic birdcalls. My favorite was the observation room overlooking the lake, which included a telescope fixed on an osprey nest.

It's so much fun to play tourist in our own town and discover these little "hidden" treasures.
