Children in the Dell at Yew Dell Botanical Gardens in Crestwood

Crestwood's Yew Dell Botanical Gardens has a wonderful children's program during the Spring and Summer months.

 photo Children in the Dell_zpsvrmapapt.png

 photo 144eba2c-1684-41dc-86c1-6b880428af68_zpsxfmbicml.jpgChildren in the Dell is a program geared toward children ages 5-10.  Beginning in May and ending in August, this Saturday morning program is free for children with admission.  Admission to Yew Dell is free for children 5 and under and $5 for children 6-17.

For the 2019 season, Yew Dell has changed the program to an informal format.  Pre-registration is no longer required.  Per their website, "Just bring the kiddos any time during the designated hours and our talented educators will enlighten you and your children with the wonders of nature. Each session will offer some new nuggets of knowledge that kiddos can expand upon in a self-guided way in the garden."

The instructors are passionate and energetic.  Even though there will be an educator, adults are asked to stay with the children and participate too.  Children in the Dell is a great way for children to tour the grounds in a fun, engaging manner.  There is usually something the kids are looking for or gathering to go along with the theme.  During one of our visits last year, we made a bird's nest, so the children walked the grounds searching for small items birds would use to make a nest.  The children then took the items back to a workspace to make the bird's nest craft. 

 photo art_zpsj5pkroxf.jpgWe spent about 30 minutes walking around Yew Dell.  We met several other staff and volunteer members and got to learn about hidden areas and little treasures around Yew Dell.  This is how we discovered the Fairy Garden - definitely something everyone should stop in to see!

The program is scheduled until noon and guests are welcome to continue visiting and touring the Gardens.  Several of the families had picnics or a short hike planned for after Children in the Dell. Children in the Dell is a great way to learn more about nature, plants, vegetables and what it entails to keep up the Gardens.

Yew Dell Botanical Gardens is located at 6220 Old LaGrange Road in Crestwood.  Children in the Dell runs every Saturday through August 17, 2019.

5 Exciting Things About the Oldham County Library Summer Reading Program

 photo Summer REading Program header_zpshxeoro02.png

This post contains general information about the Summer Reading Program and 2019 dates.

Kick off  summer with the Oldham County Public Library Summer Reading Program!

1. The Learning Experiences!
Our librarians sure know how to make reading and learning super fun! They have a schedule jam-packed with different activities. The 2019 Theme is "A Universe of Stories." Readers can sign up for some hands-on learning, stories and more. There are different activities for different ages each week. Program ages begin at babies all the way up to adults. We plan to enjoy the math and science enrichment at the Space Pioneer program.  Teens and adults should not miss out on the calendar full of great programs this summer! *Special tip for families: sign ups are required for some of these programs and they usually open one week prior to each class. Check the website early in the morning or watch Facebook!

 photo library honey hill 2_zpspf242pfv.png
2. Family Programs!
There are a lot of programs that the kids get to do alone with the great librarians, but there are also events planned for the entire family to enjoy together.  Mark your calendars with the family concerts and movies.  We, of course, like that summer reading means that families can read together too!

3. The Special Guests!
Expect to see popular guests return like Madcap Puppets and Silly Safaris.  Oooh and ahh at Wonder Wheels and sing a long with Jim Gill. *Special tip for families: Some of these shows are first come, first serve, so make sure you watch the schedule and arrive early!

 photo library pool 2_zpsurcgvlbi.png4. The Way Cool Prizes!
Not only is reading beneficial for development and continuous learning over the summer break, but the kids get rewarded for their effort!  Track your daily reading on your reading log. For every five days of reading, you earn a brag tag and a summer attraction coupon. Complete five sets of days and earn a special brag tag, a prize, and a pool party pass. Pool parties are at the Oldham County Aquatic Center!  Pool parties are scheduled the 2019 summer by elementary schools for July 29th, August 5th and 7th.  Make sure you get a pass for your pool party date!  (The parties, of course, include preschool, homeschool, private and nearby county schools, too.)

5. More and More Fun!
We love that the program includes evening and drop-in activities with such things as crafts, legos, family story time and more.  Everyone loves a good indoor movie when it's just too hot or gloomy outside.  The library has some great films lined up!  *Special tip for families: get comfy during the movie!  Bring some blankets, pillows and snacks.  Enjoy that time together!

Nachand Canoe & Kayak Rental in Prospect

We found a fun outdoor activity just outside Oldham County that you should check out this summer!

 photo NACHAND_zps1m6wocdg.png

Nachand Canoe & Kayak is located at 7001 River Road in Prospect.  We recently took a fun 4 hour kayak trip down Harrods Creek with some friends. 

 photo take off spot_zpszyfwia2t.jpg
Nachand Canoe & Kayak offers kayak, canoe and paddle board rentals.  You can choose 4 or 8 hour trips.  You can also choose a single kayak or double kayak.  Prices vary for each type of rental and there's usually a 10% discount code for booking online.  Walk-up rentals are available, but it's best to make reservations ahead of time.

Our group was a mix of single and double kayak rentals.  A single kayak rental for 4 hours was $35 and the double kayak rental was $60.  After signing all necessary waivers, our group was quickly on our way down Harrods Creek.  They provide life vests, but many of our group members mentioned that they wished they had brought their personal life vests because some of the ones at Nachand were wet or damp.  We should have expected that to be the case, but didn't think of that possibility beforehand. 

You can choose to venture down Harrods Creek or up toward the Ohio River and the Captain's Quarter's area. You, however, are not allowed to kayak on the Ohio River.  You will pass a few slow moving boats on Harrods Creek, but the majority of our trip was smooth, peaceful, deep water.  There were quite a lot of down trees and debris in the creek during our trip, but nothing we couldn't navigate.  One other characteristic of Harrods Creek we should mention is that there is little to no current on it.  This is a positive because trips booked on Harrods Creek do not include a designated end or pick up point.  The trip is four hours and that means you have to give yourself time to make the trip back to the launch area.  No current means you aren't paddling against it on the way back.

 photo tall waterfall_zpsubxmuae6.jpgHarrods Creek offers areas of shade at some points because both banks are tree lined.  We saw several deer along the banks and turtles sunbathing on logs.  Harrods Creek Park is visible during the trip also.  The best part of the trip was the waterfall at our turn around point.  We put our kayaks on the shore, located the wet water spring entering the creek and walked a short trip up a bluff to find an amazing waterfall tucked in the woods.  Make sure you are wearing a good pair of water shoes, applied some bug spray and if possible, bring a camera.  The waterfall is beautiful and offers great photo ops.  There is a steel ladder to climb to another level of the waterfall if you choose to do so.

We saw many families enjoying the rentals either in kayaks or canoes.  There were a few children at the waterfall as well.  If your children are patient enough to endure a 4 hour long trip down Harrods Creek, we would recommend including them.  There are paddleboards for children available for rental also.  We loved doing this with other couples as a fun outdoor activity.  Make sure you pack waters and maybe some light snacks.  There are spots on the kayaks to secure small coolers.  There wasn't any instruction given to our group, so we recommend asking if it's available before you book if you're apprehensive about giving kayaking a try for the first time.  You can also bring your dog along for the ride.

Nachand Canoe and Kayak Rental is located at 7001 River Road in Prospect.  Rentals are available 7 days a week 9am-6pm
