lincoln safari: peterson park

Friday, August 28th, 2009

It’s been awhile since we’ve done any of the Lincoln Safari. Bella is obsessed really likes Mickey’s Clubhouse, and there is a lot of detective work on that show. Her favorite is The Case of the Missing Muffins. She’s loves looking for clues, so I thought it would be fun to start up again with the safari.

This park’s clue was southwest of the pond, under the tree that has a branch that almost touches the ground. She was so excited when we saw that branch! I have a feeling we’ll be doing these more often in the coming months.

We spent the rest of the morning at the playground. I’m paying for it this evening, though. I think all around the pond was ragweed. Yikes!

Saturday, February 7th, 2009

We woke up on Thursday to a beautiful day: 60 degrees in February! I looked at the Lincoln Safari map to see if there were any posts close by and there was one right up at the library. We pretty much dropped everything and just went.

It was hard to convince M to follow the clues. We haven’t done this before and all she knew was that we were at the playground. Why leave the playground to follow some clue? So, we stayed at the playground until she was all played out, which was almost two hours. She ran around and I followed her with my knitting. (Hey, there’s only so much for an adult to do at the playground!)


After she was tired and ready to leave, I did manage to convince her to go do the rubbing. We hung out for a few minutes at the big rock before heading back home.
