The Outdoor Campus
Yesterday I took the kids to a place called The Outdoor Campus at Sertoma Butterfly House. It is free of charge and has about 2 miles of walking trails. Part of it is wooded and part goes through prairie grass and around some little ponds. We didn't go on all the trails but we went on some. The kids had a lot of fun. Afterwards we went to the Sertoma Park. It has 4 different playgrounds all next to each other and a big covered picninc area. There were all sorts of things for the kids to do. We plan on going back next week and doing some more exploring and take a picnic lunch. Olivia has a big spider bite on her leg that I am assuming came from there. She seems to have a slight reaction to bites so when she gets one, whatever kind it is, it gets swollen and red. This one you can see the two marks in the middle where the bite is. It doesn't seem to bother her though. She actually got two bites, mosquito I think, on her head and the hair fell out around the bumps. So she has two little bald spots where the hair is just starting to grow back. Luckily she has tons of hair and it kind of covers it up! Kind of wierd... Anyways, we had a fun day and look forward to going back!
