I grew up in Washington State where our house was surrounded by big evergreen trees and forest. We spent most of our days making forts in the woods, playing in the streams, and picking berries from our garden.
Living in UT next to a mountain our backyard isn’t a forest, but it is exactly perfect for my family.
My kids find such joy exploring in the beautiful ivy, playing on the swing set, and digging in the sand box. My favorite tree provides the best shade and most importantly it’s fenced in.
Yesterday in the pouring rain my girls were outing sand into buckets and making “cocoa”. I love their imagination! Their fav thing to do is play on the swings, this particular day Claire(she wanted to hang that way haha)wanted to swing with Cooper and Lily wanted to push. J is in the background dressed as a Pokémon master I’m sure.
