another beautiful outdoor adventure day shared with the kinder
“there is such a difference between asking,
“what did you do today?”
“what do you want to remember about today?”
another beautiful outdoor adventure day
“in this modern world where activity is stressed almost to the point of mania,
quietness as a childhood need is too often overlooked.”
-margaret wise brown, american children’s book author

a rite of passage and sure sign of spring
on outdoor adventure day.
“it isn’t that deep, they said.”
first snow of the year – outdoor adventure day
first time with sustained snow play for many
running, jumping, sticks, snow angels, footprints, chasing,
snow picnic, snow story, snowballs, duck,duck,polar bear game,
lost mittens, noses running, rosy cheeks
eating lots and lots and lots of snow
one said it was the best snack in the world
and it just might be.
“there is no land like the land of your childhood.”
with the return of the school year
comes the return of our outdoor adventure days.
“we could have never loved the earth so well if we had had no childhood in it.”
reflecting while exploring
“the way we experience the world around us is a direct reflection of the world within us.”

the kinder drew
‘the longest line in the world’
and that’s pretty long.
“every single line means something.”
* use Doritos as kindling
it’s almost officially summer
and for those of you who enjoy camping or just a good bonfire,
here’s a hack that’s a win-win in my book.
*(important note: don’t forget to hide them from the family/friends, as they may disappear)
Fire won’t start? Not a problem! We got you! If you don’t want to spend money on expensive fire starters go ahead and stop by your local grocery store and pick up a bag of Doritos. These dense, oily, corn chips are combustible, ideal kindling for starting a fire, and will last for a long time. Bonus Tip: We heard that if you get the Flaming Hot Doritos they light up even faster!
“the online music magazine pitchfork once wrote that
i would collaborate with anyone for a bag of doritos.”

That’s what all the people say
You’re riding high in April, shot down in May
But I know I’m gonna change that tune
When I’m back on top, back on top in June
