by this little creek that runs through the neighborhood, we spotted a
couple of beavers! We watched them swim around awhile. Halen was
real excited, well, we all were. The next day we went to our weekly
"story and a stroll" at the state park that's just 15 minutes from
our house. The ranger reads a story in the nature center and then we
head out for a short hike to explore. Amazingly, that day's story
was all about tails and the featured animal was Beavers. Halen got
to tell everyone that he saw two beavers the night before and was
real excited. After the story, they made these beaver tails that
make a smacking noise, like the noise the beavers make on the water
to warn other beavers of danger.
Yesterday, we went out for a great hike along the Salmon River. The
weather and the scenery were both amazing. We LOVE Oregon!

they host 'story and a stroll.' The ranger reads a book to the kids
and then they go on a hike and learn about what was in the book.
This week it was about bees. After the story, the kids made antenna
bandanas and pollen pockets, and then headed to the meadow to collect
pollen. They both had a blast.
