Ernie Miller Park Afternoon

This post is very pic heavy!

I really enjoy the nature center/park near us. It is kind of hidden in the midst of suburbia! Last weekend we 3 girls spent a few hours there. We took Kennedy's bike along for fun!

We were probably a week late for the perfect fall colors, but Kennedy didn't notice! She just wanted to play in the water! Oh, and pose for pictures!!!

Her favorite spot is where there are rocks going across the stream....we spent probably over 30 minutes just hanging out there! She jumped back and forth over the rocks, threw rocks in and watched the splashes and poked around in the water for fish and bugs.

There was a group of people in the park that were learning how to test the water and check levels of chemicals and polutants. Kennedy was rather interested in what they were doing - you can see her watching them below. I have to say I learned quite a bit about Kansas water and pollutants just by listening to them. Interesting!

We also visited the nature center. We love to check out the owls, aquarium, hawks, & snakes. They also have a bird watching room that overlooks a pond with lots of bird feeders. The room has lots of puzzles for kids to do - we have spent many fun afternoons in that room!

Thanks for checking in on us. I will be back again soon to keep you up on all our happenings!

Be blessed!
