As a little girl I loved playing outside. I loved Little House on the Prairie (did you see the updated Little House Christmas DVD?!) I'd pretend I was Laura Ingalls and find some little corner of the woods and have myself an adventure.
I'd pretend I was cooking over an open fire and gather little leaves and things for pretend food, then search for a large stick to stir the pot.
I'd collect unusual rocks and twigs.
I'd try to build a make-shift shelter.
And all this got me thinking...
...maybe we should plan a nature adventure this weekend.
We could give it an amazing name, like the Bubbling Brook Adventure Weekend :D
No? Too much?
