Forest Walk...

to me... this is what matters most...
I love my sweet little family!
gosh, the fun we have had on this vacation has been fantastic!

we have seen so many things, done so many things, and seen so many people...

but a nice walk in a forest is always the highlight!

I love how small my girls look in a huge forest... even I feel so tiny... so powerful these trees feel... the nature you hear.

I love how our girls plow through so comfortable as the trees surround them almost like they're being hugged.
We have always taught them to be kind to Mother Nature... respect her and she will be kind to you...
It's a beautiful thing when your hike takes twice as long because your girls have to move the giant snails from the trail to help Mother Nature... EVERY snail! ;-)

I love a forest but not as much as Pappa Bear...
He could probably live forever in a forest...
He has always loved them always will... I love how happy he is in the wild... like a kid again... showing our girls all of the trees, the moss, looking for forest fairies.

I love the sound of the thud... the hollowness of your steps... a good mossy forest can do just this... as you step there is this thud and you can't help but wonder what is below...
then a crackle as you step on a frail stick that was ready to leave it's tree... pop!

and then... there it is... you reach the top!
You feel SO alive!
to share these moments and take them in with our family is truly enough! I love how we appreciate nature and love to be in it...
we don't care if our shoes get mucked... we scrape a knee... it's always so worth it... it always is so beautiful!

to explore this world... to have such a passion to show our children and experience things together inspires us so much!

and then a stop by at a cookie buffet... yes you read that right!
In Sweden when you properly go to have cookies there are "cookie buffets" ... you go for coffee and walk up to a table full of cookies... BUT there HAS to be SEVEN different cookies... not six... not eight... but SEVEN! then it's official!
I love this tradition... and I love the cookies!
