on a bear hunt..

We're going on a bear hunt.
We're going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day!
We're not scared

This weekend we took the boys and their little trikes for a walk along one of our favorite paths. The trikes did not go over so well, I left the boys helmets and scooters in Florence on accident, so we didn't want to bring the big bikes and not have helmets... so we opted to bring the little trikes. After about 15 minutes of walking bent over, trying to get max to steer his little trike on the path and not off of it, me and b were soooo done. So we threw the trikes back in the car, and made a little hike up to our favorite park.

As you walk up this little hill you walk into all these huge trees, that looks like you are walking into a forest. Ollie holding b's hand says "ohhh a forest, a big dark forest." Which is a line from one of our favorite books. This started a bear hunt game...

I love the age the boys are at, most of the time. The amazing ability to learn and remember things, the curiosity, and the innocence. It is so awesome to be with them. Everyday they are getting bigger and bigger, no longer are either of the boys babies, it almost seems like Max completely missed the toddler phase, I have two full blown boys on my hands.

We ran around the big, dark forest for awhile and chased squirrels up trees and ran through flocks of robins trying to catch breakfast. Than we walked through the playing fields were you could just make out the playground on the other side.

It was a great way to spend a weekend day... we took home two very tired little men.. who took long afternoon naps, and me and b actually got to hang out together.
