My Boys!

They are hilarious!

Truly, they are!

Saturday was a day of great downpour.
As the day went on things got worse.
Everything was soaked.

However, the morning was one of those
drizzly, dark days that really should
make one feel like staying inside and
reading a book or playing a game.

Not my boys.

With Camera in hand they headed out into the
woods nearby.

While Warren and I were out they had a
"Great Adventure".





First they put on their "adventure boots".
Hmmm...I wonder if adventure boots are the boys
equivalent to ruby slippers?



Then they were off!
Leaving the safety of home...they marched out with confidence.




On their way they encountered...
a bus!

Being homeschooled this must be a huge fascination...
just kidding!

Heading across a huge field to reach the woods.
Apparently there was a large hole that attempted
to eat Mikey, but he escaped with only a slightly twisted
ankle. No long term damage...


A few dead trees may have been knocked down in the filming of this adventure.



This tree got even...sore Mikey?
Good, you deserved that!


Apparently this tree asked to be conquered.
So Mikey, the conquerer, obliged.


There is quite a bit of video that is absolutely hysterical...to me.
But I don't know how to upload our videos yet so you'll just have
to take my word for it.

Finally, they made it back to the safety of home.
This is Mikey's attempt to look like my scarecrow.
What do you think?


I love my kids!!!!!!

Have a great day!

He is a crazy one that's for sure!! It is nice to be able to just walk and explore the "wild!" We have wild here, just a different definition!!! LOL

Too funny! We had a downpour today too! When I was a little girl a bunch of us would go and explore this huge nursery behind our house...it was quite fun!

They are fun boys! Well I guess I should say young men, as they are nearly grown!

I think Mikey definitely has the look of the scarecrow's eyes down. I take it Jonathan prefers to be behind the camera, since all of the photos included Mikey? Looks like they had a good time, which can be a difficult thing to do on a rainy day.
