Stamps and turtles

We introduced Benton to a hobby of ours this weekend. It's called letterboxing. If you've never heard of it, you should read up on it. But in short, it combines Brack's love of exploring the outdoors with my love of solving puzzles. Pretty fun.

Sometimes you need a compass. Benton enjoyed navigating for us and then blindly leading us around.
When you find a box, you stamp in to your logbook. This was especially fun for Benton since it involved getting blue ink all over the place.
During our outing, Benton discovered a turtle. I believe we scarred the poor amphibian for life by letting Benton hold it. Sorry, little guy.
While Benton really likes playing outside and picking up rocks, sticks, pinestraw, dirt, or anything else he finds on the ground, he always instantly wipes his hands off when he puts it down. The kid doesn't like dirty hands. 
What a little adventurer. By the way, he's 5 for 7 on his finds. Not bad for his first trip.
