This morning my little man and I went exploring at one of our favorite places Broad Meadow Brook Conservation Center & Wildlife Sanctuary. Our first stop was the Nature Play Area to climb the play structure and check out the tunnels. Then my little sweetheart took my hand and led me down the path so we could look for frogs at the frog pond. No luck finding any even after giving our best “frog calls”. So we continued down the path, climbed the rocks carefully and found the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the brook. Owen chose a large rock for us to sit and toss sticks and rocks into the water and take a snack break! Today was such a special time for the two of us enjoying the beautiful weather in the quiet of the sanctuary. He wanted to hold my hand the whole time we walked and even told me “Good job Momma! We did it” after we made it off the rocks we had climbed to get across the brook. Nothing makes me happier than watching him explore the world around him.
