We went for a walk to the creek. It’s been a long time since I’ve gone down there. (The boys have been a couple of times with Daddy and Uncle Adrian.)
Excitement over a beaver chewed stick. We came home with several!
These are my legs covered in “hitchhikers”. I didn’t wear appropriate hiking pants, but I also didn’t plan on scrambling down banks and through brush to collect enough beaver sticks for everyone! Oh… or picking rosehips.
Taking a rest with their dog.
The sticks and stones collection.
Rosehips that we’ll dry for tea. We tried to pick them a few weeks ago, but they were so soggy that they squashed in your fingers as we tried to pluck them off.
Above is a tiny mushroom found in a rotting log piece we brought home. The boys dissected it (below) to find a few of these little mushrooms, some larvae, a centipede, and a mite.
