I spent yesterday afternoon with many of the Young Naturalist and their parents for a Christmas Holiday . . . . Cookie making party. Don’t ask what recipes they used because I just got in the way taking their pictures but they were the ones who really did all the work (although I helped eat a few of the cookies). I strongly suspect that a great deal of fun and laughter were the main ingredients with each and every cookie that was made.
Happy Cookie Makers
Although enjoying nature wasn’t our primary mission yesterday . . . the kids continued laughing and talking about nature with every cookie they cut-out. Being a photographer, I loved the amount of color they used with all of the cookies and the decorating styles that helped individualize each one of the cookies. Their teamwork truly made me think we were a mass production cookie factory and you can expect that I will gain 10 pounds over the next week eating them all!
I never expected such a wonderful friendship would develop between the kids (and even the adults) when we first started banding birds together 7 years ago. Every gathering is always anticipated with happiness and joy which was especially apparent with this visit. No “large snow storm” could ever cancel the cookie making party that was planned. Although we did make sure that we drove home slowly and cautiously!!
Decorating the cookies
Stay tuned, the groups next adventure will be doing some downhill skiing/snowboarding at one of the local Ski Resorts.
