We drove out to Burr Oak Woods on Saturday morning for their Holiday nature craft extravaganza. The kids had a blast making Christmas tree ornaments out of seed pods and acorns and pine cones and the like. They also had a great deal of fun running around and looking at the nature center when we were done making crafts.
Visiting with some of the "nature" who had escaped the bitter cold outside by nestling down inside the nature center.
Remember when daddy explained tree rings to us? We saw a tree ring from the year Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. Pretty darn cool.
