Ian, Molly and I went hiking today at a Nature Preserve called Hemlock Bluffs. We had a very lovely time. Ian made the request yesterday and he made it around a 0.8 mile loop today. We saw squirrels, a bright lime green colored snake, which jumped off the board walk when we got too close, two deer, and a green lizard that let Ian touch it several times and thus became "my friend". Here's a picture of Ian in his hiking hat and shirt waving the two leaves that he carried around the path to show daddy he had been hiking.
