As part of the 2015 Summer List, I wanted to take Little Boy to the Beaver Creek Conservation Area. It was a place that I hadn't visited in a very long time -- the last time was on an elementary school trip. While I enjoyed visiting there when I was in school, it's not a place that you would randomly say "Hey! Let's go to Beaver Creek for some fun!"
But I would love for it to become that kind of place for my son and I. We did two trails -- that were a total distance of 2.8KM -- and he rocked them hard! What a little trooper he was with all of the mosquitoes, bees and other insects, and we loved listening to the different sounds that the insects make. He's also decided that we are going to go back again and do the other two trails. I'm happy about that because it means that he had a good time.
I'd like to explore when the weather is a little cooler, and the trees have started to change. It must be so beautiful that time of year, and perhaps the animals will be more likely to be out.
