A Walk In The Woods

Remember when you grew up when going in the woods just meant taking yourself. Those were the good ole days. Ahhh a simpler time.
Ok snap back to today. Lets face it today you need to be prepared with bug spray, water, cell phone ( Hubby is jumping for joy I am willing to take it with me), trail mix, and the right outfit ( I'm a girly girl I need a great outfit!).That is the bare bones list of going in the woods for a short hike.( I have stopped taking EVERYTHING because Hubby has gone on that pesky business trip and I have to carry all the stuff!!!! I have considered renting a burrow! LOL.

Monday I went for a walk in the woods with our two brats Apollo and Cesar, while MJ was in school.
Times like these I miss hubby. I am highly allergic to poison ivy, sumac, and oak. I can get it even from a picture book. All I really know about them is they are green and you should avoid them. Which makes me avoid any leaves in threes that are green or look like palm trees. This is a good time to remind you I'm a city girl. I didn't wear sneakers until I met my husband.

Here are some pictures from my walk in the woods with our dogs

itchy poison ivy or oak I don't know

The white tic tacs in the lake are swans.
