Beaver Creek Hike

We went for a trial hike with the baby backpack for CD.
We were welcomed to Beaver Creek with fresh out of the Solar Oven chocolate chip cookies!! They were delish!


CJ educated us on what she knew about solar energy
and learned a few new facts.




Of course CD was happy because there was food!


I must say that the baby backpack is the way to go when walking on nature trails, last time we tried carrying CD and switching off. This was much easier... well for me anyway! I got to take lots of pictures!



See, I was there too!


We even got to see a beaver taking a break from his den building.


Back up at the interpretive center, the girls stopped to make fish prints!




Disclaimer:
No real, live fish were harmed in the making of this craft,
they used rubber replicas!
(Though I must confess in my Playground Leader
days we did this craft with some from the grocery store fish department! It was when the Spice Girls were popular and all the girls at the park glammed up their fish like their favorite Spice Girl.)


It was quick trip but a fun one!

Back in town we had "fish and chips" for supper.
Tee hee.

Looks like a great day! I LOVE solar ovens, bread fresh from my solar oven is amazing. How were the cookies? http://tinyurl.com/ozodls

what a great day...was that real sunshine, wow! I too love solar ovens, I made one out of a pizza box with a class once and made smores-your cookies are way more high tech! I'd love to see how! Does moto moto love the backpack too- the sprout thinks he wants one now!

You used real fish back in the day? Ewww! I'm impressed again with your wilderness skills.
