pancakes and bacon from the ol' green Coleman? yes, please.
this morning I woke Eric up and told him I felt that it was high time we went. our front gate is less than ten minutes from this favorite canyon, so....
I think I counted nine different butterfly species today.
how lovely that was.
we took some art supplies with us, and a wildflower field guide, but even those didn't get used...
too busy with mountainsides and bugs... rivers and rocks.
and wild children, too....
eventually we were done hiking, and headed back toward home...
to the luxe toy store to spend some birthday loot for Trev, and get some presents for a Beloved's birthday tomorrow.
a verra late lunch at one of our current favorites,
and then to toys-r-us with more loot money. (he chose a basketball and a pokemon ball, this time.)
with a new pair of goggles,
and satisfied spirits.
...to science with Magic School Bus,
and prehistory scenes.
i so love this tingly, twinkling life.
