We rediscovered a state treasure this week! The Boyce Thompson Arboretum is a fabulous place to stop for a day trip! The boys and I drove for an hour and landed in an oasis in the middle of the high desert!
We met a group of lovely ladies there…
…and set off to explore
an old Austrailian shepherds shanty in the “outback”
an old rock house
While admiring some roses, we discovered a baby grasshopper. The kids had fun admiring the little guy and passing him around before Keegan accidentally (dropped) released him back to the wild! 🙂
Whew. It was a tiring, but beautiful day. I can’t think of a better way to jump into our study of Creation than by going out and enjoying it!
