Evening Walk........
The kids had a lot of fun collecting wood on our walk. We have a big park just down the road and there were some big trees. It was not the plan at the beginning of the walk, but as soon as they found a few sticks there was no stopping them. Anna & Gabe collected them all and all I did was break them up so I could get them home.

I even had a really big limb that I ended up dragging behind me because it was to big to break up. We will have to take the saw to that one.

They were so proud of themselves. We now have a good pile of wood for starting fires in our fireplace and all for free. We got home right at 5:00 p.m. and it was almost dark. How sad that it is. Well maybe the kids will be ready for bed a bit earlier with it dark so early.

oh my goodness!! that is too funny your stroller. I just had to laugh. I grew up in rural NH and my father cut down and chopped his own fire wood for our wood burning stoves. (we had no central air, in our solar home.) This kind of reminded me of those times as a small child lugging brush to our pick-up truck, for either kindling, or a huge bon-fire! Hope you are well, thanks for your link to my wishes to you and your family.
