Jacksonville’s Family Nature Hunts

A few weeks ago me and my family had the opportunity to participate in a unique experience courtesy of Fun4firstcoastkids  and JaxParks…a nature hunt (an outside scavenger hunt)! We meet at Castaway Island Preserve with two other families, as we walked through the paved path we came across several clues. The clues were foot prints in the cement … the kids had to guess what kind of animal made the footprints before we reached each post where it listed the answer. Once the hike was over, each family was instructed to go to the Fun4firstcoastkids website and enter the answer for the last clue. Prizes vary from icecream to cupcakes and much more!

This was a great experience for my toddler! She’s loves exploring and being outside. TIP: It’s much more fun with a group of kids! Remember to bring snacks, water, sunscreen, bug spray, hats, sunglasses, strollers plus anything else you may need. The hunt lasted about an hour.

The hike we participated in was a preview of the FREE 10 week summer nature hunt Fun4firstcoastkids is hosting. Our hike was taped by JaxParks and used as a promotional video to give families a better idea of how the Nature Hunts work.

The 10 FREE Nature Hunts will take place June 9 – August 11 at various parks throughout Jacksonville. Check out  Fun4firstcoastkids for more details.

May is Military Spouse Month

I usually don’t talk about my experiences or life as a #milspouse, especially during deployment times. It can be very stressful and overwhelming…not talking about it makes it seem “not real”. But once I had my daughter and had conversations with other military spouses and families I realized that sometime you need to talk about it. Sharing your feelings with someone who has been there or is going through a similar situation not only helps you but the other person as well. Even though we put on our “brave face” for our family and friends we (military spouses) need support and encouragement from those close to us and for that matter maybe even strangers.

 

As I write this post I am honored to have been nominated for the 2014 Heroes At Home Military Spouse Award. I truly appreciate the nomination and hope that I will an inspiration to another military spouse and her family.
