A Visit To Long Bridge Park

I just love these yellow flowers. The wasps were all over them. 905

Today the temperature hit 92 degrees. There was a faint breeze but was humid. I took the kids to the park on a nature walk and then to the playground.

As we walked along the path, we spotted flowers of all kinds and insects. Moths, frogs, dragonflies and wasps were the order of the day. After we walked for a while, we returned to the playground and the kids playing in the swings for a bit.

Last year around this time the frogs were hatching and were everywhere. One had to walk carefully to avoid squashing them. I guess this year due to lack of rain they haven't hatched in droves like they did last year. However, we still managed to find 2 or 3 hopping around the pond. They are so tiny and so cute...even Kaylie got a chance to catch one. (This is Kaylie's hand holding the frog)

If you would like to learn more about frogs, here is a link for you:

We stopped at the store and got pizza dough and pizza sauce to make a pizza at home. MMMM, it was so good. I rolled the dough, stretched it to fit the pan, then added ham and mozarella cheese (Kaylie calls it Monsterella cheese- LOL), pizza sauce and then into the oven. 20 minutes later the perfectly toasted and tasty pizza comes out. The perfect ending to a great day.

Remember a few weeks back I was telling you that we had a Gypsy Moth Caterpillar infectation? The moths are everywhere now. And you can still see remnants of a caterpillar in the picture, along with 3 moths.

Aren't these flowers absolutely gorgeous? Their colors are so vibrant.

How about these babies? Aren't they captivating?

Don't these berries look luscious?
