A Walk in the Woods..


After dinner, we go for 'family' walks in the woods.
This is what my wee girl calls them.


One block from our house, there is a small lush forest.


I love this place.



We gather wild flower bouquets..


...but never pick the trilliums.
Picking them can starve and kill the plant.
And no one wants that.


Crazy kids have built giant mountain bike ramps.
I don't think their mothers know about this.


The same crazy kids appear to be in love.

What a beautiful setting and I love that your daughter wore her pjs and robe to the forest! Love the boots, too.

Gorgeous photos! I love your family walk tradition. What a nice way to spend time together. When my kids were little we would take flashlight walks around our neighborhood in the fall. I love the fresh, crisp air, they loved the flashlights.

This is a sweet post. Love the photos of the forest. I have about 8 acres of woodsy area at the end of my four acres and it has always felt like an adventure.
We are blessed.

Anna - did I answer the door - you bet I did, but I'm not ready to share just yet...soon though.
Karen - I love that you notice she likes to wear her pj's on these walks. Every night, she grabs her housecoat and won't wear anything but! she's a funny gal.
