The boys would rather explore the outdoors than anything else in the world. And I must admit, it is right up there in my book, too. Most of our favorite memories as a family involve some sort of outdoor exploration. I am not anxious for this phase of their life to be over.
This past weekend, we went on two different outdoor adventures, making it a perfect weekend. (The first one, I am writing about here....the other one will come in another post next.)
The first adventure was only a half a mile from our house. We live near a smallish mountain that has just been begging to be explored. This weekend, we caved in to the begging. The mountain got explored. Bradley had to work, so the boys and I packed a picnic lunch and we headed up the mountain.
After our lunch, we headed back down the mountain, but we took a more zigzag pattern looking for caves and animal burrows.
We descended the mountain and came back out onto the road. We came off the mountain at a different point than we entered the woods. We came out right at this sign.
