Swamp Adventure--Chapter 2

Our second day of Swap Adventuring started off a bit rocky. Little Lila awoke with a fever and general malaise, so I decided to bring her to class with us rather than putting her through the separation anxiety. She was a super star, even though I had a time hauling her around on what can only be described as the world's longest toddler hike ever.The class today was about rocks. I know. Exciting stuff. They did give us free sippy-cups to start, so Bronwen was stoked about that. Here she models the cup while also showing off her rock creature:

After the craft we went for our walk--Bronwen didn't know I was taking this picture...
And this is her saying, "No, no don't take my picture!"
Someone was kind enough to snap a photo of us, despite Bronwen's dislike of the paparazzi.
We went back and had a snack and Bronwen got to pet two box turtles.

Bronwen's friend Owen was there too. Bronwen was so tired after class she refused to walk. Owen's grandmother told him to give her a helping hand, so Owen took Bronwen by the hand and the two of them walked the rest of the way to the parking lot. Now I know someone will comment about Bronwen's scrunched up face, but that was only because the sun was in her face, and we were taking pictures on the sly. Apparently Owen doesn't like his photo taken either. Bronwen at one point got scared of some bug, and I asked Owen if he would scare the bugs away for her. He started waving his other hand saying, "Go away bugs!" After that Bronwen was fine.

It was so cute, I almost couldn't stand it.
After we got to the car, Bronwen and Owen hugged and said goodbye.
Can't wait to see what we do next week!

Owen and Bronwen are too cute. Sister- you are superhuman to hike with a Lila and Bronwen.

That is the cutest story. To this day, I tell Lauren about her first "date" with another one-year-old, Robert. She rolls her eyes at me!

Such a cute couple! It's a good thing Owen has a baby brother for Lila;)

Free cups are always fun! I like your Lila holster. Our weather is turning around, and I hope to do some hiking too!
I love this story, and Bronwen's rock is super cool.
