Country Living

It is great living in the country as a young boy.
You get to go dirt biking in your back yard.
Find mice, snakes, bugs and bird nests.
You can roast marshmallows in the fire pit.
And build stuff.
Building bridges with your Daddy on a Sunday afternoon is more fun than...well..pretty much anything.

Hammers and nails.  Wood and a ditch.
A bench. 

Even a ramp so they can park their bikes. 
Life is good living in the country.
Just ask my boys.

Reminds me of one of my favorite oldie songs, Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay.

Yup, no better place for a boy to grow up then wide open spaces.

That is really cool to be able to share that experience. They did a good job. :)


And thanks for linking up.

Good for your boys!

Unfortunately, my son will never have this experience, and not just because we don't live in the country, but because his dad can't build ANYTHING :)

How awesome. And, they are learning some great skills that will help them with their houses one day.

We 'built' our dridge by placing an industrial skid across the creek, and propping it up on concrete nblocks... yours looks MUCH nicer!!

Sweet! What a wonderful childhood!

Amen to that. I spent most of my youth on a farm with my Dad. It is hard to be that.

By the way, Have a Happy Mother's Day.
