We took a great hike Friday at the Lewisville ISD Outdoor Learning Area. Mrs. Deb organized the morning and we all had a great time!
Our first fun surprise was a stop at the blackberry bushes to pick and eat whatever we wanted!
Although Reese didn’t really like the taste of the berries, he was very happy to pick them for Mommy to eat!
The berries were ripe & juicy & warm from the sun. Pure bliss!
We found lots of neat critters on our hike, including a lizard which camouflaged with the oak tree perfectly. There was a huge bee hive in an old broken tree & there was even a sign reminding everyone to be quiet around the hive.
There was a beautiful mossy pond that we came across.
It looked as if you could walk right out onto the soft, green moss. Once you put a stick in it, however, it rippled & showed that it was just a thin layer on the water!
We played a spider game where the “spider” in the middle had to figure out where the “bugs” were by the shaking of the web.
After we came back to the trail head, we got to pick even more blackberries.
