Adventure Walks

We have discovered that Parker likes what we call "adventure walks" more than almost anything. More than going to the playground. More than watching cartoons. More than hide and seek. More than sleeping (OK, that's not such a stretch). More than his toy trucks and cars (OK, that might be a bit of a stretch).

He loves to pick up sticks and dig with them. He loves to crunch the leaves under his feet. He loves to play follow-the-leader. He loves to hide behind trees. He loves to point out/count trash cans and "cool" cars. He loves to make up songs with me about the things we see. He loves to pretend to fly and swim. He loves smelling flowers. During Christmas time, he loved the lights and decorations (who doesn't?).

Below are some fun photos from multiple adventure walks.

Counting the trash cans

Mama's favorite plant

Pman's Favorite Blue Truck
(he always asks to go see it)

Real Cherry Picker

Parker's Cherry Picker
(see the wheels turning? He's comparing the two)
