It was a beautiful weekend in Illinois and we had our hands full of little boys at our house. We decided that a trip to a nearby nature center would be a good place to let them burn a little energy. As you can see, where I live...it is very flat!
The prairie grasses are wild and beautiful.
The dry weather has really affected the color this fall.
Our trees just aren't as pretty as they usually are.
The water levels are very low.
It is still a beautiful sight on a warm, fall day.
Do you see how dry it is?
But the sky is so blue...
...and there are surprises in the woods.
A real Indian!
A train ride!
There are places to explore and things to see!
