Weekend in nature

So we started with Raptor Night on Friday evening, after I got off work and while it made for a long night (though we did get dinner first), we listen to a lecture, watch a video on falconry and then a little meet the birds session.

My daughter of course, wants to dive in head first and start building a cage and become an apprentice, the whole nine yards. My youngest one wasn’t too interested but he did enjoy petting one of the birds.

Then on Sunday we went over to check out the Meramec river at Emmenegger Nature Park. It was amazing how high it still is. Usually we can walk in and look for fossils and shells or just skip rocks. Today, we can’t get to close because of the unstable ground. We did however, manage to take a few pictures.

Overall, a really great weekend.
