canoe ride

Yesterday was the perfect day for a canoe trip. We had so much fun!

We saw lots of sweet little baby animals! There were tiny toads everywhere! One could sit on Clover's thumbnail. The boys caught handfuls of these toads and played with them while we got the canoe ready to go.

There were also baby ducks with with their mama mallard and a sweet little turtle.

We rowed out to an island in the middle of the lake. The kids have always seen it from shore during walks around the lake. They have always wanted to explore, and they finally got the chance! Willow was excited to stand on the willow tree that we always see growing out into the water.

We had to row one more time around the island after dinner, so that they could make plans for next time! I have a feeling that we will be there often this Summer...
