Despite being so freakin' cold and feeling like winter already, the sun came out today and I decided to take my 4 year old for a bike ride. We'd been cooped up at home all weekend (except for the quick trip to swimming lessons on Saturday morning), so I thought it about time we got out and got some fresh air.
Selflessly I interrupted being highly productive to get us out of the house. But really I just didn't want to have to decline another request from J-man of "can you help me get over to the other side" whilst he was entertaining himself on the wii. I love and hate that thing. It can keep him entertained for anywhere between 2 minutes and 2 hours. Unfortunately when he hits a stumbling block in the level it's mummy to the rescue.
Armed with my beloved SLR and my other beloved - my child - we took off for a stroll (and ride) around our hood. Here's what my camera saw (starting with some mushrooms up above)...
We found 3 types of mushrooms within 2 blocks. They are so darn cute. I've had an idea for a while to make a mushroom baby rattle.
Unfortunately I've had other priorities in my crafting world which have kept me from attempting to make one, but I think after our stroll around the 'hood today, I have the inspiration to try it this week. Think red with white polka dots for the top and soft white brushed cotton for the stalk. I will of course post photos of my attempt(s).
P.S. stay tuned for my giveaway post tomorrow! It's going to be a really darn cute one.
