How to Get Kids in the Woods

I got Jake out into the woods with me yesterday for a hike. How'd I get him there? Bribery!

Laura was going to go but changed her mind when I told her we wouldn't ride our bikes over.

I had a pocket full of gummy worms and Laffy Taffy to keep Jake "motivated" to move when, where, and how I wanted to move.

I even managed to convince him to pose for me from time to time.

Here he is eating the fruits of his labor before packing up and moving on again.

I hope to get back out with the kids today. It's a PERFECT day to get out for a hike with temperatures in the mid-80s and a slight breeze that should keep the mosquitoes from bugging us too much.

Thanks for reading,
