This morning I forced everyone out of bed and made them march along the C&O Canal for about 20 minutes. We really just needed to get out of the house and see something that wasn't on an iPad screen! We saw some herons, geese, turtles, fish and lots of dragonflies. The kids weren't impressed with the geese and the geese were NOT happy to have to move off of the path to let us pass! It's a really nice place to walk but it was pretty hot. Next time I think we should drive a little farther North and walk where the path is more narrow and shaded!
