More October Fun!

Saturday night we went with my mom, brother and his friend to the Chattahoochee Nature Center for their Halloween Hikes. It was a lot of fun! They had crafts and face paint for the kids, yummy hot chocolate, costumed animals passing out candy and a guided hike through the woods.

During the hike we would stop at different places to see animals such as the beaver, a spider, a bird and more. They would tell us a little about themselves and their habitat. Our favorite was the "rapping" Venus Fly Trap. It was so funny, she totally rapped her entire speech. We were cracking up! After we visited the fly trap we say a dragonfly. He mentioned that he had to stay clear of fly traps because they are dangerous for him. One little boy in the front said, "Don't go down there, there is a fly trap that way." Everyone laughed out loud. He was right and very serious. Nora got a little scared of the animals, so we told her that it was just people dressed in costumes. Every time we would meet a new animal she would blurt out, "That's just a man" or "that's just a lady." She had us cracking up! The raindrop that we visited asked everyone, "do you know who I am?" One little boy said, "a space ship!" As you can see the hike was a good laugh!

Mom said that she thought the boys would hate it, but they actually wouldn't stop talking about it. My brother's friend Drew spent the night with him and he told my mom that she was the best for taking them on the hike. He is a really sweet boy!

Enjoy the pics!
