I was planning a Saturday field trip for the boys and I and thought I’d check out Greycliff Prairie Dog Town State Park. I’d seen the signs from the highway (little did I know I’d seen the whole park from the highway) and wanted to check it out. I invited my friend Madeleine and her two boys–Logan, 3.5 and William, 1–plus the little peanut in her belly. We also planned to go to the park in Big Timber either as a back up or addition.
H and I took the boys to the Big Timber park last spring. It’s worth looking at the pics if you are fans of Anders and Finn fan because they have changed so much.
Prairie dogs are an important food source for endangered black-footed ferrets. Blah, blah, blah you can look it up if you want to know more.
We mostly followed the “big” boys around and tried to keep the little ones from falling in the holes.
Next we went to the park in Big Timber because it is so fun. It was hard to convince the boys to leave even though they had to be tired. (Not that being tired ever slows them down.)
You can see all 56 pictures here. What can I do, my kids (and the prairie dogs) are so dang cute that I can’t cull the photos.
