Yesterday it was one of those warm, sunny fall days in Portland, and we were lucky to join our friends Korin and Ruby and go for a walk at Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge.
The two birthday twins were happy to be out and about. We saw a snake, a caterpillar, and 2 deer.
And there were lots of crunchy leaves to play with.
Walk softly and carry a big stick. (Actually, he was pretending it was a gun.)
The whole time, Jake kept asking when we would get to the playground. He couldn't wrap his mind around the concept that we were 'just out for a walk in the woods and enjoying the trees, etc.' So when they saw these bars at the end of the trail, they were delighted and started playing on them. It was hard to get them off!
