Seeing in the Dark

My inlaws live in a small town in Tennessee. It's basically on top of a mountain in the middle of no where surrounded by lots and lots and lots of trees. The boys LOVE to go there and be what my mother in law calls "country boys". They run and explore and get dirty. Kyle took them in July when I went to TX and while they were there they went out one night and had a "nature hike" in the dark. I guess it was a huge hit and they went to bed thinking their dad was the coolest dad ever. Since then, I have been wondering if night vision binoculars would be a good thing to have at their house, I could give them to Kyle or my Mother in law as a gift? I don't know a whole lot about that kind of stuff, besides what you see on tv and movies. LOL But it seems to me that living in the complete darkness like that having night vision would HAVE to be a good thing, right? My thinking is that it would be exciting, fun, interesting to see what kind of animals are lurking in the woods at night...and it would be nice for my mother in law (who is scared when she is alone) to be able to look out and see what's going around here in the areas her porch light doesn't reach. I don't's definitely an idea I'm keeping in mind.
