Corvin had a soccer game in Arnold in the morning and Danelle was out of town. So I decided to take the kids for a hike at nearby Strawberry Creek Nature Area before his game. The three of us set out and walked about 1/3 of the path in the park. I wanted to hike more, but we were pressed for time.
Its a place I want to return and hike again when I have more time!
Danelle had a booth at Earth Day this year. It was an advocacy booth to educate people on chloride.
Danelle spent time showing people bugs from a local creek and explaining how a small amount of road salt could compromise their lives. Then she offered a holiday ornament, a piece of paper, to remind people about their salt usage when they are most likely to use them.
Lucky for us, Danelle had some help with her booth and we had some time to walk around together. I found a sign perfect for Corvin…
The kids also got a kick out of painting a St. Louis Metro bus. They had a bus there with a paint by numbers scheme.
Danelle was also near our friend, Mike Clark, who was introducing people to his boat and business getting people out on the river.
We were going to the Cardinals game to see Sonora sing the national anthem with the Avery Spotlight Singers. Laura is now living downtown so we invited her to join us. We started by parking in her garage and checking out her new place.
Eventually, we went over to the stadium to see Sonora sing.
The kids sang great and I ignored the whole ball game to talk with friends, so it turned out to be a great outing!
I’m wondering when the kids fascination with ladders will be over? Still cute!
Still unicycling around town. I met a cyber friend from Twitter and the 100 Missouri Miles website on Grant’s Trail today. Joseph Brown stopped and asked if I was Hogan. So we chatted a bit. On the unicycle, I’m a bit easier to recognize 🙂
