Ann, our nanny, told us about this fun nature trail she used to go to a lot as a kid so today we decided to go check it out.  It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon… a perfect day to be playing outside.

We finished the day by playing on the playground equipment and sliding down the slides.

Nathan was upset when other kids tried to play on “their” toys.  They got the hang of the slides very quickly.  racing between the slide and the steps to get up and go again.  Anthony preferred to go down on his belly while Nathan liked to sit on his bum.
