Some of the best wonders are in our own “backyard.” We met up with Queen Leigh for a playdate at the Copperas Cove City’s main park in late September < Why am I just now getting around to posting it? I thought I had lost these pictures when my phone was stolen. Never have I been so happy to be wrong! This is perhaps one of our Top 5 memories of this park, so of course I had to share it! >
The plan of the day was a little nature walk around one of the city parks at Copperas Cove. We brought our little notebooks and drew the ducks. Purplicious named one of them “Whitey,” and even to this day reminds us that we have an obligation to return often to taken care of “her.”
The day turned out more exciting then I had planned! Awesome!
Give this guy a medal! The kids told him about their Nature Journals. This guy pulled out a Catfish and held him up for all the kids to see. Then he pointed out the attributes of a Catfish as the kids drew a fairly realistic replica!
The adventure at an end, we packed up in the car ready to head home… Suddenly it dawned on me… I have never treated my kids to catfish! So I changed directions and headed to downtown Copperas Cove to place a dinner order at Lil Tex.
