Exploring the Woods

We met up with Benji’s “friend” Will at St. Edward’s State Park today. This is one of my favorite parks, but we almost always stay right at the play area — which is super cool, possibly one of the coolest I’ve ever seen, but still not that much fun for mommies. But this time, after hanging out in the almost-empty-of-sand sand area, I managed to coerce Benji and Will into the woods to explore.

See? Hardly any sand.

They pretended to be construction trucks, and had a delightful time for a good 15 minutes. When you’re in preschool, that’s a long time. When Will discovered a hole in a tree that he could stick his stick into, he and Benji entertained themselves for a good while looking for other holes and sticking sticks into them.
