We packed up the car and took a trip down to visit Auntie E! She took us to Sugar Grove Nature Center in Funks Grove Illinois. I wish our town had a children's area in the middle of the forest like this! Mud pits for digging, zip lines, cabins, tire swings, sand boxes, and pots laid out by the stream for cooking. Basically, every kid's dream!
The barn is set up with old rockers to take in views of the prairie.
My new bird watchers!
And the youngest explorer of the group!
And since I am on the subject of my sis, I am going to take this moment to brag about her! She is a passionate gardener who has shared her love of gardening with her students through their school garden program. Keep up the mission E!!! You Rock!
