this morning nat went to breakfast with her nana, so rick and i went out too. after we had our own breakfast, we headed to creek park. it's been too long since i have walked there and i think i will do so again. with living in the surburbs, this is the only way i can connect to nature, it seems, at least closeby. it was wonderful hearing (and finally seeing) a woodpecker way up in a tree and families of squirrels scampering about everywhere.
