Out In Nature

A recent trip to "the foothills" (the low desert hills lining the North side of Boise) gave us a couple of wonderful opportunities to be out in nature during last weekend's heat wave (can we get a whoo hoo for 60 degrees!!!).  We plunked ourselves right down at this great sand pit and Elliot had an awesome full-body digging experience.  Since parks don't have sandboxes (aka--litter boxes) anymore and we don't have one yet, digging in sand when you don't live by the coast is a rare blessing.  Nothing like some good old digging to keep a toddler engaged.  And the sand area was also next to a beautiful little stream, just right for throwing rocks.  "Puh-LASH," says Elliot.

He gets sweeter, cuter, bigger, and more full of wonder with each post. Just darling!

He's allowed to throw rocks? Aw, crap. Babysitter sucks. No wonder he looked at me like I was crazy.
