Hey all. It was a beautiful Day in Green Bay WI yesterday. It was 78 degree's and I was wearing shorts. I was in my glory. We went for our first hike of the year and of course I didnt have my camera with me.. LOL.. Oh well. There is always next time.
We went to this really neat place we found last year. They have differnt sized trails you can hike on and we took the 3 mile one I think. But by time we finished I think we walked five miles total. Its great excercise and wears the girls out totally.. Anyway it was just us four and beautiful.
We stopped to see if the fish were spawning yet but no fish in the creek. But about ten feet past the creek Kora saw a snake. It was either a gardner snake or a Fox River Snake I think they are called. I wouldnt go near the thing.. I dont care how big it was really. But Kora and Bri and Jeff had fun looking. I just warned them not to get to close to it.
Then we went a little further up where they have this huge pond. Its just huge and Kora again noticed some thing moving in the water. There about a dozen turtles swimming around. Well we walked about ten feet and saw some more and stopped to watch them but they decided they had enough swimming and started coming ashore. It was amazing watching this one turtle crawl up a log. It used its head, feet, tail and whole body to get up on that log to sun bathe... They are pretty neat creatures to watch.
Then we saw some more snakes on the return route through the trails. Just tiny ones but still gross all the same to me thank you very much... But it was a great family day. Then when we finished hiking we sat down at the pinic tables and just hung out and talked for about half an hour and came home.
Then of course it got cold here. It dropped 25 degree's between the time we came home at 5:30 and 7:30. Its raining now and its suppose to snow but lets hope it holds off and just rains for us. I am sick of snow.. But anyway I need to get my potatoes peeled and chopped and my carrots and celery for my Split Pea Soup tonight with the rest of my ham from Easter. N...happy sunday my friends.
Its about me and my family. Mainly me and the girls. I may twitter or tweet alot but its mostly thoughts and going ons here at home and thoughts about what we might be doing on weekend or our adventures. Sit down and Enjoy what you are reading.
