Energy Burner

Jillian was quite a mess yesterday. Full of cranky toddler energy and tantrums. Ugh. So I thought it might be a good idea to go to the park today, in an attempt to purge some of that energy.

It was overcast, but relatively warm (in the 50's), and there were few people around. Just the way I like it!

We saw some birds...

This guy was pecking his way into a big tree trunk. A hairy woodpecker?

And this blue jay was not especially well camouflaged...

We checked out some nature...



Jillian did some climbing...

And the best part? We saw a train! It was stopped (parked?), so we saw it at the beginning of our walk and at the end of the walk.

But most of all, we enjoyed the fall air and a little peace and quiet.

As usual, Jessica is absent from my pictures since I was wearing her, in the Ergo for the first time today. So here she is all happy and fed after we got home.
