Into the Woods

On Sunday, we were busy doing some projects and chores around the house when we decided it was just too beautiful to be stuck inside. We dropped everything and headed to the nature preserve near our house for a little hike in the woods. It was gorgeous! I love these fall days. Eli had a blast walking in the woods and picking up every single stick, nut, and rock. In case you've never noticed, there are a lot of sticks, nuts, and rocks in the woods. Needless to say, we could have been there for HOURS! He especially enjoyed picking up large sticks and hitting himself in the head. He thought that was pretty funny. Don't worry, he didn't poke his eye out. Not yet.


Sticks, sticks, and MORE sticks!! OH BOY, OH BOY! Where do I start?

Hangin' out inside the tree with daddy.

Me and my pea. Nuts, nuts, and MORE nuts!!! Hmmm...is that a stick over there? Time to go home on the daddy express.

It's always best to seize the moment. These are the ones Eli will remember. Enjoy your last few days of stay-at-home bliss! It is hard to return, but makes the homecoming oh so sweet!
