For those of you not in the know, U B Funkey is a computer game for kids, gifted to Ted by his friend Jack for his 6th birthday. Luckily, Ted prefers Legos to just about anything, but Sam! Sam LOVES it. Today after school Nyla's dad, a former backcountry ranger in Idaho and Montana, took us (and Kai) on a hike at Chautauqua. He pointed out critter tracks, local birds, basic geology, and some edible plants. The kids were in heaven. There was an old (unused!) brick oven at the end that they had fun "getting stuck" in. When Sam blurted out the title of this post, I couldn't help but laugh out loud. That's right, buddy. Being outside beats a dark basement anyday!
