A forest beckons...

After three days of being sick with a tummy bug, Grace finally seemed to be feeling better, so I decided some fresh air was in order. We spread out blankets on the lawn, painted our toes, watched the birds and enjoyed the warmth of the sun. Our new home backs to a lovely little forest. It enticed us off our quilt and into its lush green wonderland... A small bridge crosses over a trickling creek. Grace wanted to go across but with freshly painted toes I could hardly throw on my boots! I promised her on another day we would explore further...

Grace felt it necessary to run back into the house get a crayon and paper and draw a "map"  of the "fairy forest" so we wouldn't get lost. Precious.

After our brief stroll through the forest I was drawn to some of the flowers in our yard...

A lovely afternoon with my little girl, surrounded by the beauty of nature - loved it.

Get out and take a walk through a forest near you. The child in you will thank you.
