and to our great delight we found the otters out playing on the ice!
Too much cuteness.
We spent a rapt half hour just watching them using the dock section as a slide, splashing in and out of the one unfrozen place near the reeds, and just generally acting like furry fools. They seemed as curious as we were, and even our dog sat motionless watching them. What a wonderful experience. We'll definitely be going back that way another day in the hopes of seeing them again!
From the Last Outdoor Play Party, it was so hard to narrow down my favourites, but here are three posts that you'll want to make sure you didn't miss:
Winegums and Watermelons shared Wildlife at the Pond.
My Nearest and Dearest had a guest post as part of their Discovering the Natural World Series - about Moss! So cool.
P Is For Preschooler shared a bunch of Fun Ways to Play in the Snow.
