Such cute little eaglets in their cozy nest!

Don't worry, he's still growing...

This goat adored Ethan, "Pet meeee! Give me atttenttionnn!"

We wanted to take him home. But, we had trouble sneaking him out of the zoo...

One was in Holly's hood too!

Swing like an Orangutan! Go mama!

Miss Industrious keeping record of every animal we saw.

autumn nature walk

We went on a nature walk down our road. Things have changed since its Autumn; and now that its nearly over, the trees are bare and scraggly. Well, not the Evergreens. But, all the diciduous trees are!

Jonathan is drawing a picture of Rabbit's Ear. He takes nature walks very seriously!

I think perhaps, that this was one of the last nice days of Fall!

Dinosaurs Before Dark

I just finished reading Dinosaurs Before Dark a little while ago. It is one of my favorite books. It is probably my favorite Magic Tree House book. It is about a boy and a girl named Jack and Annie. One day they were taking a walk and playing in the woods near their house.

"Help! A monster!" said Annie.
"Yeah, sure," said Jack. "A real monster in Frog Creek, Pennsylvania."
"Run, Jack!" said Annie. She ran up the road and disappeared into the woods.

They found a magic tree house in a tall oak tree. They climbed up the rope ladder. They found a book about dinosaurs and Jack opened it. The tree house began to shake and spin. Suddenly, they were transported to the time of the dinosaurs!

This book is funny, exciting and easy to read. To find out what happens to Jack and Annie, you can look this book up at your library!
