A walk in nature : picture overload!

My boys go on a nature walk at school every year, They decided it would be soooo much fun to take their sisters and mom on one!
We live right by their school so this morning after breakfast and an ample supply of sunscreen we were off.

The paths were easy to find and nice and cool in the woods! Nathaniel had to point out the poison ivy to us.
This was the only real wildlife we saw aside from birds :)

A really nice podium and bench area on the path.
We then went in search of another path.. Then we saw that sign... We considered going down that path... Then we saw someone walking our way so we continued on our merry way... We came back to the sign later..
Down that little road we found a huge field we have never seen before
There were no less than 6 soccer goals... we will definitely be going back
Then we wound our way back up to the playground
It was HOT
After the kids had sufficiently wilted in the sun we headed back to where the sign was
check it out...
OK so we read the sign... looked around.. there was no one there so we went... Yeah I'm bad  :) Luckily we didn't get in trouble/caught....
It was a really nice trail... I didn't let the kids move anything or disturb any of the wild life.
Poor Caitlynn was really getting tired
When we were almost done we found a map :)
And we are out!
We saw the railroad tracks
And then home.. Where we went in and collapsed! It was so much fun and if we don't see anyone around I'm pretty sure we will be walking the trail again this summer!
