Survivor Man...

Can you guess what we watch on T.V? Discovery channel, Survivor Man, Dirty Jobs, you get the picture. We know that when getting through the jungles of Costa Rica, going through the mangroves isn't possible. Crickets can be good when roasted, but don't eat them raw, they can contain worms. We know tons of that type information.

So when Dallin wanted to play survivor man for a day, a very drenching rainy day I might add, I agreed. I gave permission to cut down 5 palm leaves to make his shelter. This is what he came up with.

He swears that it was actually comfortable to lay on the palms but I wasn't ready to try when he insisted. He hung out there in the deluge for at least a few hours. He did come in dry so this survivor man's mother was quite impressed.

Of course Aiden, Landon and Paige wanted to get in to the action. I made these little green slickers for them before they left for their adventures. (Poked a hole for heads and arms) It's amazing how easy it is at this age for your kids to think you are a genius. I plan to thoroughly take advantage of this.

You have very adventurous children! Makes life fun, doesn't it?

I have not been a genius to my kids for years now. What's up with that?
