Yesterday after picking the oldest up from school I decided that we would go try to look for some of the elusive Morel Mushrooms. It didn't matter that I felt terrible and should have really been sleeping rather than hiking. I wanted out of the house and the kids enjoy getting out and doing something fun as well.
So we went to Little Wall Lake and had a walk. It was a lot of fun, didn't turn up any of those silly mushrooms since the trees and land was not right but that didn't matter. Watching my kids explore and the excitement on their faces totally made up for it.
Araya found a big pinecone that she was really excited about and Nevaeh needed one as well. The sweet kind hearted soul wasn't about to leave her brother out and emerged from under the tree with one for her and one for her brother.
The enjoyed picking the dandelions and watching the water. Running ahead to see how far they could get before mom yelled for them to stop. For them everything is an adventure and it is so fun to watch them explore and learn about new things. The birds flying overhead even caught their attentions. What better way to spend an hour than water then grow and learn about nature!
