Outdoor Fun... to the Woods We Go

Our children are off from school for Easter break from Thursday of last week till Wednesday this week. The weather last Monday was great so we did a little exploration at the nearby woods to break some sweat out of our bodies.
It was a perfect time because  there were no mosquitoes around since the  land was dry and the trees  have not grown fully just yet.  We were in full alert though just in case there are some snakes lurking around, luckily we did not see any.  We saw some snake holes though but no snake, thanks goodness.
It's always  great to break these two away from gadgets.. but.. as you can see my daughter has her iPod with her and that's because she wanted to take pictures and record  a video of  our journey which I did not mind.  
She took a lot of pictures and , on the other hand took pictures of them as we  went hehehe.  They were amazed how  woodpecker can dig  deep in the tree.
Mr. Burrito was testing his balance skill on this long branch that fell.  
Exploring the woods is something that we always love to do during warm weather  because  it help us physically and it is a great bonding too.  Aside  from that, it is also educational as they get to see things that mother nature has to  offer that a lot of kids nowadays only sees on TV as they are not into  this kind of activities.  
We rand  and had fun hiking.  Little brother is always ready to  help big sister.  She tok a video of her running down and climbing up, it was funny.
This is the end of our fun-journey.  We saw a lot of birds, deer track and poop, and we enjoyed the breath of fresh air.  Thanks to God for the beautiful day! Glad we were able to enjoy the warm weather because it got cold again  for the past couple of days.  I wish to have one of those playsets in stafford va from here  for the summer.  Our trampoline is the only thing we have in our backyard and it isn't enough.

  12. It looks liked they had a great time. I wish I can bring the little kid to the woods as well. The hustle and bustle here in Manila is crazy.

  14. Wow, I would love to do trekking in the woods but not the very scary kind where all I can see are trees. I'm glad your kiddos enjoy the great outdoors. It something kids in this generation should enjoy and appreciate so they will have this love for nature and the environment and respect for the wilds.
