We Play: Outside


We had some outdoor fun last week with my sister.  She has a wildlife biology degree, and had a good time teaching E about some of the plants in our area.  E learned about gumweed, wild onions, gullys, and got to smell a ponderosa pine tree.  (What - you've never done this?  It smells like butterscotch!)  She got pretty good at spotting the onions and gumweed!

Off we go on the trail! 
Don't ask me why she's wearing
stickers as bandaids, though.

We love walking through scente garens. There is one peppery scented plant that we can always smell but never find, but it gives us something to look forward to the next time :)

Fantastic Auntie sharing her knowledge with children :)

Love the sticker bandaids, they look cool.
