Happy Boys

You know what makes my kids happy?  Being outside.  It doesn't much matter what they're doing - they always find some adventure.
And while they may still chat about Minecraft, while running and leaping and climbing, at least they are soaking in the great outdoors and having fun along the way. 

Readers, have you ventured outside lately?

Not sure I've mentioned it in a while but ya'll are great parents to those boys! Hum, maybe I need to move my elliptical outside for variety...I'm spending a lot of time on that thing.

After our long period of rain and mud, they were probably running out the door when the sun came out.

The best place to address all thoughts

I need to - soon! But my kiddo needs to, too. A lot more. The rain here for like two weeks slowed us down!!

You know what makes me happy? Being outside! No matter what I'm doing, I love being outside. I even try to do my computer work outside when I can :)

I venture out every morning to feed, turn out and muck. I breathe in the fresh air and feel lucky to have the ability to do so, instead of an office where I spent far too much time in my young years.

Happy kiddos and so refreshing to see children actually playing outdoors. I went out this morning and raked pine needles, but had to stop at that since we are under a burn ban. :(

Nothing like developing an appreciation for nature as a young person! Kudos to the parents :)

Not enough, Lisa. But the boys look happy and it's enjoyable to see them having fun! Have a nice weekend!!

lol on the Minecraft comment. My son talks about it with his friends too when he's outside playing. It seems to be a universal kid language. ;) That's a great picture!

Isaak loves it outside. I have to push Mica out there. I don't know what his problem is. I loved being outdoors when I was a kid!

Lexie Loo, Lily, Liam, and Dylan Too! said...

They are too cute!
We have a rule where the kids have to play outside for a bit everyday (weather permitting) before they turn on any electronics.

HI LISA,
YOUR BOYS ARE SO ADORABLE.
THEY LOOK REALLY HAPPY ALL THE TIME.
HAVE A BLESSED FALL SEASON WITH FAMILY,
FRIENDS, LOVED ONES!!
BLESSINGS,
STARRY.

I think our boys would be good friends. My son loves the great outdoors too, and thankfully, he will choose it over Minecraft any day. Of course, enjoying the great outdoors while talking about Minecraft would be #1 on his list.

I remember my boys loved being outdoors! I walk on the beach almost every day, collecting sea shells and taking photographs of the sunrise or sunset or just anything that strikes my fancy. :) I'm really enjoying living on Chesapeake Bay.

When I was a kid, I liked being outside too.
