|Examing leaves near our townhouse|
We visited Roosevelt Island in Arlington, VA (just outside of the DC limits) on Saturday. Today, we went to Leeslyvannia State park in Woodbridge, VA. This park bordered the Potomac River. She charged the water a few times before becoming discouraged from us telling her no. (Water is another piece of nature that Madeline adores.) She eventually found tons of leaves and sticks that kept her busy. With the seasons soon changing in DC, Madeline is going to be in pure heaven. Leaves everywhere...

Leesylvannia State Park
I am not quite sure where the love of nature came from. Jack and myself like the outdoors but have never been into nature like Madeline seems to be. It will be interesting to see if Madeline continues to value the outdoors as she gets older and more mature.

Until then, Jack and I can usually find a park bench and watch as Madeline enjoys her simple pleasure...
