Zip Line, Creepy Crawlies & another Project

This will be so cool!
Grand Vue Park is adding a Zip Line this year and I can't wait until it's done.
Katie & I went to the playground at Grand Vue yesterday when I snapped these pictures. The very first photo at the top is of the platform where I am assuming the Zip Line will begin. It's on the highest hilltop in the park. 
You can read more about the park and it's new Zip Line HERE.
While at the park we were surrounded by creepy crawlies.
It's tent worm (caterpillar) season here and all the trees are full of these worm bags.
So disgusting!
The little caterpillars have come out and were everywhere. You couldn't help but to step on them....they were literally crawling all over the ground.


Not only did we see caterpillars though!
We saw millipedes doing the same thing. They were in the grass, on the sidewalks and in the play area at the park. Strange to see so many of these at one time.


Today not much is going on. Schooling, laundry, pumping the pool cover off after all the rain that we received last night and hopefully a bit of stitching this afternoon.
Oh, and I have another little project that I've begun.
Here's a sneak peek.
I'll post more of it as I get more done.

We've had a rash of earwigs (I call them "pinchers"). I've seen the tent worms as well, but not to the degree you are describing. Ick! Because of such a mild winter, we will all probably see more bugs than usual. As long as they stay outside and don't get in the house, I'm okay with it. LOL!
Ah! You are working on hexagons!
