Hiding Out ~ Outdoor Challenge Day 23


What to do when the pouring rain and wind returns....

Playing in the woodshed

Why you hide out in the woodshed! *grin*
The weather has taken a turn for the worst again but in our quest to make sure that we get outside at least once every day this month I thought that the perfect place to play would be in the woodshed :)

wood shed

It's also the perfect place to hunt for salamanders! We dug around in the lumber pile and underneath the wood and were able to spot a couple of different ones but the little guys were much to quick for us today and we just couldn't catch one to share with you :(

Our Wood pile

My oldest son K has taken a liking to splitting wood and I couldn't be happier :) Just look at the size of the pile that needs to be split & stacked!! And that's only half of it!

Splitting Wood

He's been working away at it slowly and his dad is going to be so proud of him when he gets home :) Hubby is gone for weeks at a time as a tugboat captain so any extra help with the 'manly' chores is always greatly appreciated. You should have seen K the first day he came in from splitting though. He was so gung ho to get started that he worked out there most of the day and when he came in just before dinner he was so tired that he fell fast asleep on the couch by 5:30pm LOL. I think he's definitely deserving of a little raise in his allowance for taking on this mammoth pile!
