Little Explorers

My mother in law got each of the boys an explorer vest for Christmas. They both love to dress up and they both love to collect things outdoors. So, these vests, with tons of pockets, that make them into "explorers" for the day are so much fun for them. Paired with their binoculars, the vests have come out on several exploratory journeys around our neighborhood.

Logan almost always holds his binoculars upside-down and backwards.

Ethan decided that their vests needed to have their names on them. So I got a Sharpie for him and he was so proud to write his name on his vest...

...and Logan's name on his vest for him.

I love how these next four photos show how funny and random kids are...at least this kid...

After a brief rest on the ground in the warm sun, they were back on their feet exploring. They made it home with leaves, acorns, and at least one flower from a weed in their many pockets.
