A walk around the block

I try to take the kids out for a walk each afternoon to get some fresh air and exercise.  We don't go very far, but it takes quite a while with an inquisitive 3 year old.  I took my camera along for yesterday's walk, to document some of the things that happen on our walks.

Of course we have to start out with jumping in a few puddles...

then pick a dandelion...

inspect a caterpillar...

and see if the caterpillar wants to smell the dandelion.

Then there are flowers to examine...

have to see what this tree feels like...

and what sound it makes to drop pebbles down the drain.

then it's over the "rainbow trail" (aka the shortcut path) and back to home.

And we can't forget about Emmett, who, despite the "stink eye" in this picture, really enjoys going for walks too!

So that's a glimpse of what happens when we go for a walk! :)

I love the day to day documenting of our simple yet beautiful lives, I also love looking at things through the eyes/ perspective of a 3 year-old!
Enjoy:)

So fun seeing things through the eyes of our children. So often as adults we overlook so much beauty and adventure that is right in front of us.
Great pictures!

I'm really good at walking through puddles in my sandals and not getting my feet wet!! It is still one the highlights of my day when I can do that. Sharing the flower with the caterpillar shows she cares for both! What a great series of photos.
