San Augustine Park
January 30, 2012
Hiking and geocaching, yes that is what we do in the cool months. So here we are again this time at San Augustine Park…
and we had a picnic breakfast under the group shelter.
I loved on my wonderful son. Really is had nothing to do with me freezing because it was brisk that day and I was without my jacket!
After a Subway breakfast we headed toward the hiking trail. And of course it is strategically positioned behind a play ground which the littles couldn’t help but try out.
“Mom I am a baby!” Anna calls out being silly.
Monkey see, monkey do!!
We hiked around the trail enjoying the sunshine and the cool weather. There was a geocache we was aiming to find but it was at the farthest point so we just enjoyed the hike until we got there.
Austin honed in on it before the littles had a chance.
“Look momma, a little mustache!”
We made it out to the lake shore. The water was low so the kids could walk the shore and explore a bit. Anna looks so “country” with her brother’s boots on!
Austin, ever being the scientist, investigated a skull of a gar (and yes brought it home in is back pack for further study)
Walking the bridge rails was fun and so was jumping off of them.
Adam caught a green anole! Poor little green guy was trying to show off his “money bag’ when low and behold a giant Adam captured him. “Greeny” was trying his best to look intimidating! Giant Adam was amused.
Daddy and daughter sat quietly on the bench and looked at the lake for a bit. But it was time to move on along the trail.
As we were walking along the path something fluttered up from basically under my feet. Startled, I looked and it was a Pine Warbler! It was acting hurt so I went to catch it and it flew off. “Ahh”, I said, “ Feigning an injury to get us away from something.” Seemed a bit early for a nest but who knows. I was just happy to get a new bird for my birding list!
Today was a wonderful day with the family!
