I want my little guys to have a love and thankfulness for the creation God has made. So almost everyday I try to get them outside for walks to explore nature, or as we call them "nature walks" its also a great way to burn off some of that pint up energy that kids never seem to run out of!
On our nature walks I ask my two year old to look for lizards ,birds and squirrels, we point out the colors of the trees and flowers,stop to examine ants crossing the sidewalk and have a blast making animal noises and singing the alphabet song!
I treasure these walks, away from the distractions of my phone and computer, God reminds me how blessed I really am.
Today on our nature walk Elijah handed me a fist full of crumpled up leaves and excitedly said "er mama fowers or you!" ( here mama flowers for you) my heart just about melted onto the side walk. These are the moments I will remember when I look back and my babies are all grown up.
Here is a few pictures from our walk today and one of what they look like after a walk- all tuckered out!
