Fossils, butterflies, spear-chucking and seining were on the agenda this afternoon at our local Metro Park.  Mom stayed home with Gawain, who was sick and Charlotte, who had severely burned her finger.  The remaining able-bodied family members spent the afternoon enjoying programs offered by the Metro Park system conservation officers.  The weather was beautiful, frost this morning and warming to 70 degrees by this afternoon.  Wish the rest of us could’ve been there…

Hubby took pictures of the fun:

The children were fascinated by this mastadon fossil

First bows, now spears?! I wonder what’s next…

Butterflies…Emily enjoyed observing the many specimens on display

Hope your Sabbath was equally enjoyable!
