JFK Arboretum

It has been raining here all week, and the wind has been blowing between 35 and 45 miles per hour constantly. So, needless to say, we haven't gotten our quota of outside time in, though we have tried to brave the elements a few times. My boys have literally been bouncing off the walls, and I've been ready to pull my hair out. We were all so thankful that today dawned clear and bright and that we were able to get out of the house and do some exploring. Apparently, JFK's ancestors are from this region, so there are a couple of memorials honoring he and his family nearby. We decided to go to the JFK Arboretum, where we found a fantastic playground, lots of lovely trails to explore, and plenty of fresh air and wide open space. I think we are all better equipped to face tomorrow now!

The Keeper of the Trees

Bunny Buddies

A walk in the woods is good for the soul.

There were trees of all kinds in the park, but the maples put on the best fall colors.

A beautiful day in a beautiful place

It's a jungle gym. It's a merry-go-round.
It's more fun than you can stand!
(And, not the least bit unsafe, I'm sure!)

These two were so excited to find a hedge house to play in.
It quickly became a fort, with a stockpile of stick weapons.

The immature hedge maze was pretty easy to navigate,
but these two "hunters" did it over and over!

Throwing lessons

Tossing the ball around is one of this kid's love languages!
