Another wonderful Casa Manana children’s theater production- The Stinky Cheese Man based on the book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales.
We enjoyed it thoroughly- even having not known the premises of a couple of the fairy tales.
Not being a group to let an excuse for an extended adventure go to waste, we met up down the road at the Ft. Worth Botanic Gardens once again. This time, we checked out another area which happens to have a children’s boardwalk filled with exciting things to see and do. We went the length of the boardwalk investigating which “phones” connected to which and were able to track down the mates to all but one with this method: Elijah tells me to stay at the one we are investigating and runs ahead to talk into both at the next station until it is determined that we can hear/speak to each other. Then I run to catch up. Repeat.
We even saw this guy! This is a rare sight indeed. Though we have seen several of these in preserved form, this was the first phasmatodea (AKA- stick bug or walking stick) we had ever seen that was quite alive!
Elijah and Sadie peek out of the climbing log on the boardwalk.
Sadie loves to make ink pictures out of various types of berries. Here she investigates the berries of this bush. It was determined that they were a lovely color but not juicy enough to produce an ink. They were brought home and used for a collage instead.
Elijah listens to bird calls and looks at the birds to which they correspond.
Elijah and Ethan look at birds and their eggs. Ever seen a hummingbird egg? They’re tiny!!!
