childhood unplugged

As a last trip of the summer we went to spend two weeks in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina at my in-laws home, a home that my husband spent his childhood summers in.  Over the years we have come here and the boys always love it, but this year specifically this place took on a new life.  Jim pulled out the wooden swords that he and his brother played with when they were our boys age.  He brought them out in the woods to the tree that was his hideout and showed them what made it so special.

From hikes to visiting the local nature center to playing in the house to running out into the forrest behind the house the boys had a wonderful vacation.  What I love most is the ability to let them go outside and give them a bit of independence, to let their imagination run wild.
