Today we decided to go for a walk. Originally, we were going to walk to a very pretty lake, but we got a little lost. (Kyle disputes the word "lost," but as we never made it to our destination and didn't really know where we were at a few points, I think it fits.) Anyhow. This is what became of our day.
First, meet Mr. Slug Bug:
[NOTE: Mr. Slug Bug is approximately three inches in length. Which I would deem GIGANTIC for a little slug.]
Mr. Slug Bug and quite a few of his friends were crawling around in the middle of the bike trail we were walking on. After discovering a squished member of the Slug Bug clan, I decided something must be done, and Kyle and I proceeded to Save the Slugs. One by one they were scooped up into an empty McDonald's cup (or prodded onto a stick) and kindly relocated to a shady spot on the side of the road. When all was said and done, seven Slug Bugs escaped an untimely and unfortunate demise.
After all the slugs were safe and sound, I discovered my dream home. Isn't it just perfect?
[NOTE: I am 99% sure that we had already taken a wrong turn by the time I found above dream home.]
After a half hour or so we lost all hope of finding the lake and proceeded to wander around the city aimlessly, which is how we found what is quite possibly the most amazing playground in the entire world. Kyle made good use of the...whatever you call this thing:
[NOTE: Though this was a lot of fun for us, I think it's a safety hazard for kids. That's a gravel pit you're looking at, folks.]
Anyhow, it was dark by the time we made it home. (Which didn't occur until after a German-McDonald's trip, thank you very much.) So as no one could see anyhow, I did a very dorky and cliche thing and found a flower for my hair just outside of post.
All in all, a very successful trip. :)
