King of the mountain.

Alena! had to work a couple of hours today, so SP was ensconced in his chair having a second breakfast.  Aunty Laresa came by and we decided to take a quick outing to see what we could see.

Looking home.

Looking home.

SP soon found a big metal chain that he proceeded to drag around the hills until he got too tired to drag it anymore.  I am sure his mom will be forever grateful that we didn’t let him bring it home.2

We wandered around and, of course, he was soon so hot and sweating.  It is very hard to keep a coat on this boy.  At least he was willing to tie it around his waist, so that we didn’t have to haul it around.

Too hot for a coat.

Running in the hills and exploring – what could be better?  I’m sure it would be better if Grandma wasn’t there telling him to “get away from the edge…don’t poke your eye out on the bushes…stop running so fast,  you’re going to trip in those boots!” 

Woo hoo!

Woo hoo!

We had to distract SP by taking pictures of the pole when he realized it was a climbing pole! 

Thank goodness SP isn't tall enough to make the first step!

We were investigating various things, including the status of cranberry plants. 

Last year's berries with spring buds.

The fireweed are sprouting.  Shoots like these are yummy this time of year.  Use them in salads, stir fry, spring rolls and whatever else you can think of to do with veggies.

Climbing on concrete seems to be a lot of fun.  9

And all that running around – like a dog, he probably puts in 75% more mileage than we do – a rest is always in order. 

All done in.

All done in.

Time to go home.
