Rocks, sticks and dirt

When we do something with Owen that we did when he was younger it shows me how much he has grown. Last weekend we were on a hike and Owen was enjoying the views from daddy's shoulders in the backpack. As I looked at him I noticed how far down his legs were dangling compared to the previous time he was in that backpack. He is getting so big! 

He had a grand time. It was his perfect playground, rocks, sticks and lots of dirt. He had brown snot for days afterwards. He enjoyed rock climbing in his jammies with mommy and looking at bugs, still in jammies, with daddy (to ease your worries, the caterpillar was not harmed). He has no fear of water, which ended in wet shoes several times. He loves to be outside. He had fun with his Grandma collecting sticks and trying to eat rocks. What is one of your favorite things to do on a weekend off?

    2. I wondered who this was (till I saw the second comment). :) Thanks for offering a lifejacket! We have one that we use in the boats. They were just playing around in one/two foot water for a bit.
