Bob and Ethan at Bluff Lake Nature Center
While his parents toured the new hospital and birthing center as a possible location for the birth of his new brother, we took Ethan to two favorite parks both within 3 miles of our home. The first, Bluff Lake, is a small lake and animal preserve. It is a favorite of birders, school groups and families . Ethan, who likes to "run with Grandpa," ran most of the 1 1/4 miles around the lake with just a few stops to look at ducks, geese and rabbits.
Afterwards we drove to City Park to walk around the lake, watch the fountain and enjoy the sunset.
Geese just before sunset
We walked nearer to the Pavilion and were able to capture the full-on color of a beautiful September sunset below. (As always, you can click on the photo for a larger view.)
