A Little Time to Roam....

Yesterday when I got home from teaching my HardCORE class my Hubby and son Kyle had flag football practice and Kaleb was at work. Little Miss Olivia was outside driving around in her "Red Car" and was not even close to being ready to go into the house yet. So, I walked around behind her pushing her when I needed to or to get her up the hill or if she just decided she didn't want to move the car herself. She is a silly girl like that!! HA!!

After a while she decided it was time to stop "driving" and wanted to check out the different plants & flowers in the front yard. After rummaging through the yard and trying to get her to understand the different smells that plants and flowers have I thought it would be fun to go on a little hike through the woods in my back yard. The back yard butts up to Fairfax County Park Land and there are many different trails throughout the whole area back there. I also thought it would be fun to search for some Morel Mushrooms while we were out back there.

So, Olivia and I went for a little hike through the woods, I showed her where the tree house was and we walked toward the creek. I pointed out different trees and rocks and she enjoyed picking up sticks and rummaging through the leaves. She did a pretty good job walking along the trail with her short little legs (she is only 1) but once we got near the creek she decided she didn't want to walk anymore so I carried her back up to the house. It was a fun time for both of us even though I couldn't find any morels we both had a great experience that we can do many times over again!!

You never really know the possibilities for different interactions that you can have in your own back yard. Try to make a point to get out there, get down on the ground and check things out. You might be surprised by what you find!!
