Next Door Nature - Theodore Roosevelt Island

This afternoon I took our little one to Theodore Roosevelt Island and as always, I was blown away by what a gem it is. In about 10 minutes, we went from our neighborhood to The Great Outdoors.

We oggled the giant statue of Theodore, and practiced our reading skills on the massive quotes (man, those are some tricky words!). We also practiced skipping stones, and I taught him how to recognize trail blazes. The highlight, though, was poking around a "beach" area where we found extra large snails in the mud. For a 45 minute outdoor adventure, it's hard to beat.
