Happy First Day of No School!
One playground we had not visited in over a year and we were quite surprised to find that the old tennis court had been turned into a new skate park!
What a fun day - it was so nice to relax and play together.
We also made it to the library, a favorite spot.
Leena asked a librarian where she could find more books about optical illusions, and the librarian was surprised that she had homework already!
Leena, of course, just likes optical illusions, but I guess they don't often see a kid researching their own interests.
Speaking of which, one part of the skate park was very steep, and it had turned into a caterpillar trap. We rescued four large and interesting caterpillars, of which we took home three to try to raise in our butterfly pavilion.
Anyone know this fella?
We ended our day at the "alien" playground near the library.
We call it that because it looks like it was designed by and for space aliens.
