The Children and Nature Network has declared the month of April to be Children and Nature Awareness Month. This really makes me happy. Children need to be outdoors. Thank you Lisa for making us aware by posting about it here.
To celebrate I thought I would share a photographic tour of part of our weekend. On Saturday, my husband and our dog Nara had search & rescue training at a mountain about an hour away from our house. The girls and I tagged along for an outdoor adventure. Little did we know it snowed there the night before, so we were not fully prepared for our exploration but that didn't stop us.
I love the moss covered trees here.

Trees as far as the eye can see
It really was a beautiful place, and the girls were in heaven being able to finally play in snow. I couldn't stop taking pictures but instead of making this post even more picture heavy than it already is, I uploaded some more onto my flickr page.
Wishing you all a fun week of outdoor play!
