Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Psalm 84:3

OxBow Christmas

The Growing Garcia's and our family celebrated our "Christmas" with a hike around Oxbow Nature Center. The boys along with Sadie and Kelli took off, following the map and trying out all the trails. Madison earned her name 'Hollywood' by complaining the whole time about being... (insert descriptive word here) itchy, tired, hot, thirsty etc until we spotted turtles on the path. The kids followed the first turtle until it was off the path and under some tree branches. The second turtle ran along side us for awhile until it found a hiding spot under a huge tree. We actually thought we saw Madison smile. LOL We will try the nature hike again during spring break, Madison is not sure if she will be joining us, but our boys and "tom boys" want to take binoculars and stay longer. Oh boy!
