A Sunny Day Walkabout (One of My Very Favorite Things)

The sun came out to play today! That means I got to go outside and run and play and smell things!

It was so great to be outside that I just had to smell the air for a while first. It’s really fresh here in the woods. I like it better than anywhere else.


Don’t worry, I also smelled lots of other things. This time of year the leaves on the ground hold on to all kinds of good stuff.


(Remember what I said about touching things with your nose when you smell? If you can even dig your nose into them, that’s the very best way.)

I also like to climb up on the rocks to see what the world looks like from up there. This is a good one to look around from.

This tree was super fun because I could fit all the way inside. From the way it smelled, I think I’m not the only one who went inside to play.

A lot of walking about is just about exploring stuff. Can you tell how much fun this is?? bl20130224_Walkabout_115 bl20130224_Walkabout_117bl20130224_Walkabout_091

I like to end my walkabouts with something called Zooming. I usually Zoom in loops that look like the number 8 all around the front yard. That way I make sure to use up any leftover energy I have before it’s time to go back inside.


Today it was warm enough out that we all stayed on the front porch for a while after Zooming.
