What does our recent visit to the International Peace Gardens have to do with a wonderful web wednesday? Well, I wouldn’t have known about this fabulous place if I hadn’t read about Nature Days on I Never Grew Up and Utah’s Natural Kids, and I wouldn’t have read those two blogs if I hadn’t met Vanessa (@inevergrewup) on Twitter and then in real life. I love it when virtuality meets reality!
On Monday I met with a handful of other moms including Vanessa, Amber (@amberorme), Quinn (@createdybmom) from CreatedByMom.com and Vone (@EvonneSell) from Sell…Party of 3 at the International Peace Gardens in Salt Lake City. We let our kids explore nature (i.e. jump in the water, play in the mud, pick the dandelions and reorganize the pebble-filled paths) while we did a little chatting and kept tabs on our ever curious kids. The weather was beautiful and it was nice to have some adult conversation while my kids burned off some of their seeming unending supply of energy.
We are already looking forward to our next Nature Days. I can’t wait to see where Vanessa sends us! (And maybe I’ll arrive on time for the next one. Thank heavens Quinn was a tad late too…thanks, babe!) To catch the next Nature Days subscribe to both I Never Grew Up and Utah’s Natural Kids. You won’t want to miss it! –Emily
P.S. George absolutely LOVES his bike, which is similar to the ones you saw in the slideshow. You can find your own Boot Scoot Bike at CreatedByMom.com. They’re AWESOME!!!
