Outdoor Treasure

We're having a great time outside right now discovering our new home town and enjoying the weather.

Look who else wants to climb trees!





On a long walk yesterday, we discovered this awesome trail through the woods in our neighborhood.









It felt like a discovery from our childhoods 25 years ago when kids played in creeks, skipped rocks and got dirty.

The children loved it and could have stayed much later. Blake took them back after dinner to play some more.

Feels like summer.

It won't be long! And, we'll be back to find more trails and skip more rocks.

This is EXACTLY what children should be doing - good old fashioned fun! Love these pics of your little angels.

Seriously, that is too cool. I loved exploring the creeks and trials, and most importantly mom knew we were just fine... SO not like that today here!

Totally agree! And, we'd be gone all day......around water all the time.....no where near our parents. It was a different world!

That looks like so much fun!!! The days when entertainment didn't revolve around computers and TVs. :) Thanks for sharing...and enjoy all of your future exploring.

The good old days! It is so hard to find places like that now, and if you do, chances are there are kids there doing things they shouldn't be doing if you know what I mean. It's really sad. Glad you guys are exploring you new surroundings!
