Last week, under the recommendation of the girls' violin teacher we explored a new park in Kearney, Cotton Mill Park, and LOVED it! It is full of nature trails, a lake, picnic and play areas, and during the summer time, a nature barn. I was so excited to find a place like this.
We enjoyed the fall sights, like lots and lots of woolly bear caterpillars--
Monarch butterflies fueling up for migration--
That special glow a setting autumn sun has--
Kids setting off down a new path--
And pausing for a large grasshopper laying eggs--
Good times. ;o)
And definitely my FAVORITE time of year to be out enjoying the creation with my family--you just never know what you're going to find!
