We've started a kind of ad-hoc family tradition this summer.
After church on most Sundays, during the drive home, we'll stop off at the Prairie Elementary School at 80-something and Mission Road to check out the incredible outdoor classroom they have created.
The gardens boast dozens of different vegetable and flower varieties. Our daughter was impressed with the sunflower, and took a few of the ripe seeds as a souvenir last Sunday.
There's also this really cool iron sculpture.
But the favorite of our soon-to-be-five-year-old is the pond with giant lily pads.
