We have a pretty decent-sized lot for the metro Atlanta area.
Our property consists of just under 2 acres but our house and manicured lawn only take up 1/2 of an acre. That means we have a huge unkempt forest in our backyard that the kids have just recently started to explore.
They ask to go "play in the woods" daily.
Sometimes I say NO because when they come back they are always caked in mud BUT sometimes I say YES because they have so much FUN.
Besides, if you happen to have an exciting forest in your backyard shouldn't you be able to have some BackYard Fun?!!

(judging by their outfits can you tell the outside temperature?
...yeah, me neither)
Why walk on dry ground when you can walk in the creek?
Tera joined us on the latest BackYard Fun adventure.
Somehow with Tera in the mix things get even muddier.
I tell ya...that girl is crazy!
But that's why we Love her.
(please note: all children in the above pictures were completely de-ticked and de-leeched and de-whatevered after exploring this wooded area in the deep South.)
