Day 37; This is the way to take a walk

Day 37 of 365; This is the way to take a walk

“God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars.” ~Martin Luther

This is THE way to take a walk. With your chlidren. πŸ™‚

The first photo above was taken with my iphone & edited using the Instigram App. The rest of the photos below, were taken using my Nikon SLR D40 Camera with the Nikkor 18-200mm Lens . {Photos with me in them were taken by my 6 year old son, Rayce πŸ™‚ }

Sunday morning I woke up early and snuck in the shower BEFORE the kids were awake- this is a very rare occurance, my showers usually consist of kids pounding on the bathroom door or crying “Mommmy!!!” the entire time I am showering. So this shower was a luxury and started off my Sunday just right!

I decided to pack the kids up and go on an adventure, ..I had no plans of taking photos, no plans even where we were going to!!! But they didn’t ask questions, didn’t complain, just got their boots, hats, and jackets on and jumped in the Jeep and said “Ready mom!”

This is ONE of the many reasons I adore my children, I am starting to see such adventurous, go with the flow attitudes and beautiful hearts in both of them as they grow.

We ended up at a park in Chippewa Falls and stopped to see some geese that were honking obnoxiously loud -but the kids LOVED them- of course! πŸ™‚

Then as we got out of the Jeep to see the geese, we decided to take a little walk and ended up on a closed road within the park ..and had a wonderful time.

My two year old daughter Camryn is turning into quite the little mini-me. She notices the smallest, yet most beautiful things most of us would overlook. She noticed some deer tracks near the water that was trickling down the cliff and a beautiful hawk that landed in the trees above us.

I needed this walk. I keep getting sucked into the slump of the winter blues..and this pulled me out , just in time! (whew!)

I just love my children to pieces and cherish every time they come on an adventure with me.

I think YOU should take time to get your children outdoors , you don’t have to have a perfect set of plans- just go, and enjoy your kids and the world God created for us to explore- because that is the perfect way to take a walk!

More of my photos from other adventures can be seen on my Gallery site.

Quotes for Today;

I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright. ~Henry David Thoreau

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers – for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are. ~Osho
