Over the river and through the woods...

Well, not really, just kinda through the woods. We have a nice forest preserve just seconds from our house and would you believe, I have only been there twice so since Alyson had been bugging me to take her there that is where we went. At first the kids just wanted to "hang" around a bit and just relax and have some fun on the trees.

I guess all that "hanging" around makes you quite thirsty so they found a water well with some very cold water to wet their whistles.

You know me, I will take a picture of anything and everything so when I saw this bug I just had to snap a picture of it. I think it is a dragonfly of some sort. I have never seen one like this and was really amazed at how different it looked when I came home and uploaded these photos. I really thought I would be able to get more photos of interesting creatures, but for now I will have to settle for just this one.
