The good old days!

I remember as a kid having so much fun exploring new and old places. It makes me so happy to see my kids do the same. They have discovered a place in the back, behind our house and have claimed it their own. They love it!

Hidden inside that little jungle is a world of pure imagination...



The beginnings of a great fort



Best Friends......



Their fort is decorated with some rusty nails strategically places onto various tree trunks, a broken "keep out" sign and a rope tied on to multiple trees for all sorts of adventure. Life as a kid is great!



The rain gave them a great opportunity to collect all sorts of organisms.


I know I can't be a kid again, but it's great to relive it through my children's eyes.
