J is for...

To start our letter J day, we began with an adventure, actually because we are working on the letter J, let's call it a JOURNEY. A journey that has turned out to be one of my favorite memories so far.

We first had to create the necessary gear for our journey. (Sorry no step by step pictures. I have confidence in you that you can figure it out without the tutorial though.)

Binoculars...check. Vest...check. Can you figure out where they are going yet???? Remember, we are working on the letter J!
JUMP on their JEEP! They will take you on their JOURNEY...
This might not look like much. It might not be obvious to you, but back behind this tall tree is something remarkable. It is like a whole different world. Have you figured out what it might be???
Keep looking...
Oh, there it is!!!! There it is!!!!
As they got closer, it became more and more evident. (And it brought more and more JOY to them!)
It is over there. No, it is over there!! It is everywhere!
The terrain got tougher and the Jeep could not take them any further, so on foot they went. They came around the bend and what did they see????

A JUNGLE!!!!!! They instantly had JUNGLE fever!!

There were animals hanging from the vines...

Elephants on the ground...

Even frogs crawling on the trees!

Monkeys were hanging in the trees and bananas growing everywhere...
Wow!!! Even koalas were swinging on the jungle vines!
They had never been to a jungle like this before! Absolute amazement!!!
It was as if the animals were talking to them. It was so adorable.

The animals in this jungle were sooooooo friendly.

We even got to try the jungle bananas.
Christopher's daddy got to visit the jungle too.
These three are so cute together!
And so are we four. :)
There is more to come from the Letter J!
