What rolls down stairs
alone or in pairs,
and over your neighbor's dog?
What's great for a snack,
And fits on your back?
It's log, log, log
It's log, it's log,
It's big, it's heavy, it's wood.
It's log, it's log, it's better than bad, it's good.
Everyone wants a log
You're gonna love it, log
Come on and get your log
Everyone needs a log
log log log
Please excuse the Ren & Stimpy reference. I couldn't resist.
Today my mom and I went to the Erie Canal in DeWitt to take a walk.
I actually haven't been to the Erie Canal in the Syracuse area in a long time. I used to run on the canal in Rochester and being on the trail in Syracuse might just have been enough inspiration to get me running again. It's a great place to run or ride your bike because there's no motor traffic and, for a runner anyway, the gravel path is much nicer for your knees than pavement or sidewalk.
There are also lots of pretty wildflowers and interesting bugs to look at along the canal.
Here are some wild strawberries.
I don't know what kind of bugs these are, but they looked really neat flying around -- they're really shiny.
This honeysuckle tree picture didn't come out that great, but believe me, it smelled amazing!
All in all, a very nice walk!
