Ethan and I went on a little walk this morning while Mom was sleeping in. He really likes to be outside, even when it's a little chilly.
He first explored the recycling bins right next to our back door, where he found a soda can that was just his size.
He was soon bored of that and so he started walking around the neighborhood. He found a "hidden" path between two houses.
On the other side there were some dogs, who barked at him from across the street. He loves dogs, but I wouldn't let him cross the street, so he sat down to watch them from the other side.
Soon it was time to go home (especially because I hadn't yet showered or changed clothes or anything--just wandering around in my pajamas and a jacket).
I sometimes wonder if this counts as spending "quality time" together. It seems that, more often than not, I'm just tagging along on one of his adventures.
