Fun in the woods!
I'd say the best thing about moving home besides family is the fact that my kids get to enjoy a childhood with the woods in their backyard. Some of my fondest memories from growing up are my adventures in these same woods whether it was climbing into the ravine to get some quiet time by one of the two waterfalls behind my house or late night escapades with my best friend. There is something to be said about living in a nature preserve, it's amazing!
As an adult, parent and a photographer, these woods continue to bring me joy. I spend as much time as I can there whether it be shooting a family session, a family hike or as we call them "bear hunts", and again for my alone time when I just want to get away and breath or need a little exercise. I use these woods more than I use my gym membership and my kids enjoy playing in them as much if not more than the local playgrounds.
I feel like everyone is so busy these days or glued to a device, moms drop their kids off in gym daycares, or plop them in front of a television so that they can work out. Getting outside is so good for everyone. I hope at least one of you will go for an adventure after reading this and seeing the following photos.
Happy Friday! Go play!
