Pirate adventure

One of my goals this summer for the boys and I is to get out and visit more parks and nature trails around our area. So earlier this week when I asked the boys if they wanted to go on little hike, Ian jumped and up down, nodding yes. Then he suddenly stopped and looked at me with this quizzical look and asked, "a pirate hike?". I quickly jumped on board and exclaimed, "of course, yes, a pirate hike!". (Whoo-hoo creative thinking!)

We went searching the house for pirate attire and something to put a hidden treasure in. And then we were off.

Sawyer trying desperately to keep up with Ian. He did a pretty good job too.

Found a hill he needed to conquer. Sawyer tried as well but only managed a belly slide about halfway up.

Even little pirates need a quick lunch break.

Taking his newly found walking stick home. His treasure from our hike.

Great idea. The boys looked like they were having a good time. I like Ian's walking stick.

Hi Andrea,
Thanks so much for stopping by my place and leaving such a lovely comment :0)

Your boys are gorgeous!
And I had to smile over the walking stick hiking tresure.
My girls are always bringing home "treasures" shells, sticks, leaves, feathers.
It's so sweet how they see so many treasures in nature.

Blessings to your family.
