Park Day and Seed Demonstrations

We stink at gardening… but look what we managed to grow.
Stubby Carrots.  Tomatoes.  Mint.
I can't take credit for the mint.  
Actually, I've attempted to eradicate the mint; but apparently it's here to stay, so I've embraced it.

We met up with some friends at Brooksvale Park, Hamden CT.

Had no idea there would be a discovery table set up and a free science lesson.
What a pleasant surprise!
This lady is my new favorite person!

We learned about different seed types and how they travel.
She had toys to demonstrate.
New favorite person.

Some seeds get carried by the wind.
Like parachutes.

Some seeds fly and spin.
Like a helicopter.

Some seeds float in water.

Some seeds stick to people and animals.
Like Velcro.

Some seeds get shot out.
Like rockets!

We got to meet an American Box Turtle.
The boys named her Olivia.

I think we found our happy place...

Common Ground School in New Haven.  I just love this place.

Today they hosted an open farm day for the kids.  It was such a great time, and the weather was PERFECT!

Wetlands exploration.

Digging to China.

Tasting in the Children's Garden.


Daisy Sheep and Stewie Goat.



Back for more chicken cuddles.

Checking out how things went back at the wetlands exploration area.  
They ended up finding quite a bit while we were away!
