Rock on Barney Day

Hello, everyone. I'm Jennifer and I'm an author. I love being outside and looking at all that nature gives us. I don’t mind if it’s wet or dry, hot or cold.  I know that there is so much to see. So, today we will be thinking a lot about what we can see or do outdoors or by bringing the outdoors in.
