Adventure in Your Area – Get Out of The House

You know what happens when kids are out of school??? My kids run around pants-less and we veg out. It’s nice for a few days and then there is a not-so-magical moment when it switches… and the house starts to close in on us. Sometimes I think there can’t be anything out in the world near us that we haven’t already done.

…and then I make myself find something. To get out… to see the sun…

I’m sure no matter where you live, you think you’ve seen everything there is to see especially if you’ve lived there a long time. But when company comes to town you have to be creative. To dig around and see what else there is to experience.

That’s what happened to us last week. I found something that we had never done before. We went on an adventure.

Feed the Stingrays? Sure… let’s do it.

I find it odd that places like this just seem to pop up. They aren’t big, and it’s not a place people say is a “must do”…but in a tiny way it is. To experience your community and the habitats that are in your community.

“So what you are saying is I have to put this in my hands?”

“Um…”

His face says it all. Not sure what to think of it.

He was brave until the stingray came over and then it was mom’s job to be brave. He quickly gave me the fish. 🙂 I love the moments when he thinks I have it all together. I’m not sure how long that will last but I’ll pretend I know what’s going on as long as I can.

Fierce.

In case you are interested this was at the Florida Oceanographic Society in Stuart, Florida. It is a good ‘one hour’ or so visit if you are in the area… 🙂
