Pooh Sticks

Today we hiked at Heron Creek...Violet in her stroller (snoozing away under layers of polar fleece), Matias alternating between walking and riding in the Ergo carrier on my back. We are getting into a nice routine...I walk, he sings "Happy and You Know It". Favorite verses include "jump jump, kiss your mom, and shout HOOOO-RAY!

We made it to the wooden bridge over Heron Creek, and stopped for a game of Pooh Sticks (a game they play in a Winnie the Pooh story where they drop sticks on one side of a bridge, and watch them float under the bridge and out the other side).
My little Christopher Robin is getting the hang of Pooh Sticks...fewer sticks land on the banks, and he has figured out that the current only runs in one direction (after waiting with great anticipation on the upstream side for sticks that would never appear).

I was thrilled that on this, our second trip to the bridge, he was so excited to get there that he happily passed by the park with no tears!
