It seems like our Sunday afternoons are spent going to Open Houses or driving around looking at the listings our realtor sends us. I could drive around and look at houses (or pour over house plans) until the cows come home. The kids- not so much.
Last night we wanted to go and look at a piece of property that is a potential building site if we decide we are up for building a house. We knew we needed to get creative if we were going to keep the kids from melting down when we announced that we'd be going to look at it. We threw on their helmets and put their bikes and scooters in the van and told them we were going "exploring".
Not a bad place to go "exploring", huh? People can knock Kentucky all they want- with the no teeth and no shoes jokes- but I think there is no where in the world more gorgeous!
We walked all over the property and the kids decided where they would put tree houses and forts and tents and campfires in case we ever "settled this land".
We took a little break on the fence and the light was so beautiful that I had to catch a picture of my loves.
After having such a bad week last week, it was great to get out and walk around and watch the kids dream big dreams and play like the carefree people they are.
Also, they've never seen the parental benefits that come from all that "exploring".
