Picnic at the Dam

A few weeks ago, we met my Aunt & Uncle for a picnic at a local Dam. We didn't end up going to see the actual dam, we just hung out in the picnic area. It was so quiet and peaceful and the kids were having a great time exploring around some water there.

Exploring..

What's that you found?


A frogpole! Summer and AJ both found dozens of tadpoles at various stages and lots of tiny frogs too. AJ has a huge amount of patience to watch and catch tiny critters for a closer inspection.

These Morton Bay Fig Trees are excellent for climbing! I started up this one but it had a ton of ants all over it so I jumped off. These were nasty looking biting ants. Usually they don't have ants and are super fun.
