Today we braved the heatwave in order to attend the Habitat Fair at Islandwood, which is an environmental learning center. Luckily, as the name would imply, the area is heavily wooded, and the shade offered a respite from one of the first true scorchers of the season. Doesn't he look like he's about to melt onto Drew's head?
While we were there, Silas got to meet an owl, plant a sunflower seed, and check out their hydroponic water recycling system. Very cool.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Silas explored the joys of the garden hose:
Every time he accidentally sprayed himself with water, he looked absolutely shocked. But he loved it all the same. Brings back fond childhood memories...
We set up a sprinkler that whirled water around and thought he'd love it, but it made a funny noise and freaked him out. Turns out, the hose was enough to keep him happy for a very long time :)
